I'm curious - this one was on my list because of the markings, but the Eyes (no space between) and the markings seem different from those on the link (except the one marked female). Is this a gender thing?

Perhaps
- Armadillidium nasatum?

Thanks for all the help with IDs. I'm not a entomologist, and a little new to this. Mind was blown by the diversity in a 1-block park. Enjoying learning about bugs, so bring all the info...
This one turned to square off with my phone camera - bold is certainly the word...

Not sure you can see the scale of this, but it's pretty small - probably about 5/8".
Does that still compute for black swallowtail? I have seen them in this park, so it makes sense.

Undoubtedly - thanks for your help and the correction. Had a hard time finding anything like it.

Not sure if this is helpful, but it looks like the crab spider family...

probably dead. There were so many red aphids on this plant I thought maybe he ate himself to death...
