    Hi,

    You may already have the answer, but incase you dont, this beuaty is  Oniscus asellus, the common woodlouse. It is characterised by very pale edges to the body plates and a long telson (the last segment of the body fund only in crustaceans). Like many woodlice, it is a great decomposer of organic matter, and usually found with rotting wood.
