Pentidotea wosnesenskii

Pentidotea wonsnesenskii is a marine isopod which lives on seaweed on rocky shores along the British Columbia and Washington coastlines, as far south as San Francisco.[3] It can be as large as 40 millimetres (1.6 in) long,[2] is usually green, but its colour is adaptable to its environment. It can often be found hiding under rockweed (Fucus gardnerii) in the intertidal zone.[2] It is named after the Russian biologist Ilya G. Voznesenskii.[3]
