Black armoured woodlouse

Observation - Black armoured woodlouse - UK and Ireland. Description: Big dark shiny woodlouse, about 1.3cm long. Very dark in colour, most unlike the usual pale grey softer looking woodlice that we see every day. Having studied palaeontology I can't help thinking about trilobites...
