Number of ocelli?
psweet - any chance you have another photo of this animal that has a better view of the eyes? There are probably only two species that this could be, and based on the number of ocelli present in the eyes, this could be very easily narrowed down to species.

No other photos
At least, no sharp ones, but I've attempted to enlarge the head a bit -- don't know if it'll help.

Moved from Woodlice.

Most likely a Trichoniscidae.
