This species is found in woods, under logs, along roads, under stones, in woodsheds, usually in moderately dry places. It may be distinguished from other terrestrial forms by the great convexity of the body and its ability to roll up into a ball. Armadillidium is the only other terrestrial form capable of roll- ing into a ball but with this there can be no confusion because of the pointed telson and prominent uropods of Cylisticus.
