The isopod Hemilepistus reaumurii is a species adapted to dry and semi-arid climates. In the population of El Hencha (southern Tunisia), the females enter into the reproductive period in April, the expulsion of the progeny happens in June. The male is different from the female by a genital apophysis and at birth the individuals are sexually undifferentiated and have only six pairs of pereiopods. As in other terrestrial Crustacea, there is an appearance of a median outline of the genital apophysis at the fourth moulting in the male, and of one pair of genital orifices at the fifth moulting in the case of the female. Beside those common features, we have also noticed particular characteristics in the development of the integument (ornamentation and colour) and in the aspect of pleopods 1 and 2.
