I don't think the little

I don't think the little crest between the antennae is narrow enough for nasatum.

I'm in trouble!

Because I didn't mention that my grand-daughter found this woodlouse. She is a handy spotter, at the age of six. SO: WELL SPOTTED, ERIN WALKER!

vulgare

I'm confident this is Armadillidium vulgare on the character John Bratton has mentioned, plus the slightly broader build of vulgare and I have never seen nasatum with a colour pattern like this.
