The problem with isopods is many people are naming the same kind of isopod with a different name when they come to the market. There’s like 6 kinds of cubaris “white sides”. So this category upgrade will be very confusing without proper proof of some being actually different than just word of mouth. (Like caramel crème and white pigeon/ tiramisu , red tiger / red tiger stripe, Cubaris rusty / storm trooper / angry monk, stingray / ammonia all being basically the same just different variants)
Amber fire flies and amber pandas and ambers are all different from each other.
Armadillidium sp. Cookies and Cream
(If I’m not mistaken this project never took off before it could be replicated)
What could be added (off the top of my head)
Armadillidium nasatum “White/Gold Jellybeans”
Cubaris sp. lemon head (is a rubber ducky mutation)
Scaber lemonade (form of calico? But still different enough)
Armadillidium peraccae “Pied”
Cubaris murina Whiteout (think there is a trade name but forgot)
And the whole nesodillo category like silver ghost , shirso utsuri, purple ghost (not sure if this should count, yeti (whiteout)
There is no hiding that this task will be gigantic, I would personally just start off with what’s known for sure.
@hellfire_exotics thanks for all that amazing info! Will definitely be adjusting the list to just the well-known ones instead of including the super obscure isopods like seen all over the Cubaris category. (for example: Cubaris sp. fog. Not many people already have these so will keep it off for now)
I believe C. murina “Glacier” is what you are looking for.
This project is crazy. I knew there was well over a hundred cultivars if not hundreds, but didn’t notice that listing them would take SO LONG!
I guess I brought this upon myself. Sorry about that @eaglereptiles This really will be a big project and we have just scratched the surface but I will push on. Now to go to bed and dedicate tomorrow to this. Again
Either way it’ll be a great start especially for people who are just getting into isopods!
