The wharf roach (フナムシ, Funamushi?) is a bug that was introduced in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. This bug will appear on the beach and is very timid, darting away and often burrowing out of sight. It is common on the island, but rarer elsewhere.

Donating to the Museum

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."

Further Information

Lexotica1 wharf roach

Wharf roaches are a type of marine isopod, and a crustacean that lurks along sandy shorelines. As a relative of the pill bug they feature a segmented carapace and over 10 legs. They are most often found near rocks and cliffs where it spends time in damp crevies. In some places they congregate on manmade stone structures such as harbor walls and jetties. Despite the name they are not related to cockroaches, and the relation is only that they are fast ground-dwelling organisms.

The native range of the wharf roach is often disputed but it is thought to originate from the Mediterranean coastline or elsewhere along the Indian or Pacific Ocean. The species has been inadvertently introduced to the United States, Hawaii, and several other tropical regions.
