Though some might attribute the mushrooms on this isopod's back to some sort of parasitic fungus, this is actually the result of a mutually beneficial relationship. As the tiny animal scouts around the forest floor, the mushroom caps are able to disperse their spores over a wider area. In return, the fungus emits an odor that attracts even smaller bugs for the isopod to feed on.
