Dirt Bug

You have to be paying attention, when walking around the East Village, to see dirt bugs.

Fortunately, East Village Today pays very close attention!

Behold, as seen in Orchard Alley community garden on East 4th Street:

Dirt bug.

Here is a close-up:


Some people call them Roly Polies, other people call them Pill Bugs, still other people call them Doodle Bugs. Their Latin name is Armadillidiidae.

Insect armadillos!
