(a) Tandonia budapestensis in its typical C-shape resting position within a soil cavity that was topped by a board. The eggs could well be from this specimen. (b) A pair of mating T. budapestensis, as the species is commonly encountered because of its prolonged copulation (typically from evening to midday: Quick 1960). Both pictures from Nork Park allotments, Banstead, Surrey, England.
