Isopoda
The Order Isopoda (Phylum Arthropoda) are characterized by a simple flattened elongated oval body, with a distinct head, thorax and abdomen, and simple, basically identical, legs (hence 'iso' and 'pod') (adapted from Hayward et al., 1996). This group include the sea slates, gribble and woodlice.
