This little orange bug i have never set eyes on before - it appeared underneath a planter when i picked it up to re-plant. i am wondering if it is perhaps a relative of the wood lice or maybe a genetic deformity? ....i'm clutching at straws here.

The second picture while more fuzzy shows the antennae more clearly than the first picture.
