Despite the larger maximum size of the skirted isopod, the great canyon isopod reaches larger adult sizes more consistently. This species often burrows but will also crawl and accumulate under bark and egg cartons. Low population density is vital to producing large individuals, as well as to consistent reproduction. Due to its size, rate of consumption, and relative dryness tolerance, this species works well as a clean-up crew for herptiles.
