Evening sowbug activities

Last week at the arboretum, the cool of evening brought out bunches of sowbugs (pill-bugs, roly-polys, whatever you call them, they're isopods.) Anyway, they were all over the flowers, often feasting family-style in the center.

I came upon this pair at the foot of a garden bench. I've never seen them in this position before.
I don't think they're mating. Maybe this is how they "spoon".
