Pillbug was seen in soil samples by using the foldscope tool.

Pillbug was seen in soil samoles through foldscope.A woodlouse (plural woodlice) is a crustacean from the monophyletic (Schmidt et al., 2008) suborder Oniscidea within the isopods. The first woodlice were marine isopods which are presumed to have colonised land in the Carboniferous.
