Emptying out a flowerpot I noticed some very striking orangey pink woodlice at the bottom of it. I don't recall seeing such things before so I had to look them up, but lo and behold I hadn't discovered a new species in my garden (it's always the way). They are Androniscus dentiger – also known as the rosy woodlouse or pink woodlouse.

  1. Aren’t they pretty? I liked the reason for them being found more in Anglican churches than Catholic ones!
