    Identification needed please, problem ahead ?

    Hello everyone,

    This morning, I did find this in my sphagnum and I would like to know if I should be afraid of that. It is rather big. The chart is in mm.

    I can't find a similar pic on the net.

    I grow my CP in the basement. I keep a window slightly open so some small insects could come in via the screen but it don't usually happen.

    In the past, I did find some "humidity" detrivore insects in the LFS a kept really wet. Could this be the same thing ?

    It didn't jump but was quick ... seems a bit big for a springtail.

    Than you very much for your help.

    Just a sow bug. Nothing to worry about.

    Hi Cthulhu138,

    I didn't know the name but that's what I initially thought it was.

    Thank you very much for the identification.
