Armadillidium depressum (Brandt, 1833)
This is a large Woodlouse, with the ability to roll into a slightly open ball when threatened. This characteristic is a useful technique in helping to determine identity, but should not be used alone when identifying. This Armadillidium depressum was a surprise find on the wall of Carr Bank Park in Mansfield, when found tucked into a small eroded peice of stone and measured 18mm in length. The NBN Gateway map, shows that Armadillidium depressum has a predominantly a south-western distribution.
