In New Leaf

In New Leaf an information board in the bug exhibit will list information about this bug.

"Wharf roaches can be seen along the sea, usually just above the waterline on rocky cliffs. They feed mainly on microalgae and detritus that drift to the seashore, making them cleaners of sorts. They often move in groups and run away quickly when they hear people approaching."

The Wharf Roach is a marine isopod that lurks along sandy shorelines but mainly near rocks and cliffs in the splash zone just above high water mark where it lives in damp crevices. It is also found, sometimes in large numbers, on jetties and harbour walls.The native range of the wharf roach is disputed possibly from the meditteranean or the indian or pacific ocean.It has spread to the US and hawaii and many other temperate and subtropical regions of the world ,though by accident.They feed on microalgae,diatoms,plant remains and deritus.The name roach only refers to its appearance; in actuality it is a relative of the Pill Bug.
