Does anyone know the status of our knowledge of North American terrestrial
Isopods?  Are there faunal lists, regional treatments, keys? These
creatures are either superficially treated or totally ignored in our
Entomology texts.

In New England, there are few species and the individuals are ubiquitous.
A student of mine is interested in placing names on his specimens, but I
know of no taxonomic work to identify even our common New England species.

Is there a specialist working on this group?

Thanks in advance,
