Moved, Porcellionides indeed...
As for which species it is, I have no idea how to tell floria and pruinosus apart...

Moved from ID Request.

 
They look the same
Apparently, floria and pruinosus are morphologically identical or something, but have different distributions in the US.

 
Yeah, I think it comes down to dissection...
In order to tell them apart. They do have different ranges, but I believe their ranges overlap down south, so I'm not sure what this guy is.

Powder
I believe the powdery gray coating of Porcellionides is a distinctive feature, but wait for experts.
