Scaly bug - Porcellio spinicornis

Scaly bug - Porcellio spinicornis
Melfort, Carrot River Valley, Saskatchewan, Canada
June 18, 2010
Would appreciate an ID on this one. A very small bug but moves very fast when it moves.

Moved from Woodlice.

Porcellio spinicornis
Lovely shot of a beautiful animal! The flat body, yellow spots flanking the mid dorsal line, pale stripe at the base of the epimera, and black head comprise a distinctive pattern. The dorsal tubercles are very pronounced, as in the commoner P. scaber. This species is typically a calciphile found in association with limestone or building mortar.

Moved from ID Request.

I'm not sure but looks like this one:)

Woodlice ID
Thanks very much for the ID. Appreciated.
