Look more like Porcellio to me. Armadillidium are more rounded or hump-backed.

They are not pill millipedes, they are isopods :)

No worries, we all have those days! Definitely Armadillidium at the top and I believe the rest are Porcellio. Looks like you have a nice mix, which is always fun to have. @Hisserdude, thoughts on the isopods? There are a couple individuals in that second pic that could be different, but I'd appreciate a second opinion on them.

@pannaking22 actually what he has are both A.vulgare and Cylisticus convexus, I don't see any Porcellio in his pictures. :)
Ahh, Cyclistus! I had thought that myself seeing how skinny they were and the lack of the flare on the edges, but figured P. scaber was the more common option. You'd have thought I'd note the size as well as a clue :embarrassed: Thanks for double checking!

Yeah, they look similar at a first glance, but their smooth surface and more slender build set them apart from Porcellio. :) No problem, happy to help!
