This is Picripleuroxus denticulatus (aka Pleuroxus denticulatus). Enlarged, you can see the denticles at the posterior-ventral corner of the carapace. You can also see the cluster of denticles at the distal end of the postabdomen. You can see a selection of photos of this species here https://linnet.geog.ubc.ca/efauna/photo ... nticulatus
