ABSTRACT Female Schizidium tiberianum (Isopoda: Oniscidea: Armadillidiidae) reproduced once only during their second year of life. Males were rarely found in the natural adult population and the sex ratio was 1 M:6 F, although the juvenile sex ratio was 1 M:1 F. Ovarian and oocyte dimensions, and oocyte numbers were followed during the second half of the year. The ovary consisted of a single row of oocytes. A certain number of oocytes did not mature into marsupial ova. Mancas emerged from the marsupium starting the third week of March and continued throughout April. The females died either during, or soon after, having released the mancas. The latter fed on the female's carcass. The reproductive allocation and potential of this semelparous isopod were estimated.
