Is this a woodlouse? It's got a very un-woodlousy back end...

If anyone could help, I'd be really grateful. I found this today in an orchard in South Somerset on a nettle in the rain. It didn't act much like a woodlouse as I only realised it might be when I got the camera to it. And yet, it doesn't have a woodlouse tail with the two spiky exopodites(?) either and its legs seemed a little long. I spent a while on the internet, thinking it might be a Rosy woodlouse, but that was the nearest I could get. Should mention that it measured around 5mm.

 

Just been on Arkive and it's a little simular to a pink pill woodlouse. Could it be that with missing armour at the back?
