I think you were making a joke with polyplacophores, right? ;) We know its not a sea dwelling creature...

It almost looks like a large nymph from the group Epilamprinae, however it could well be a Blaberidae. Either case, semi-dry to damp is fine for molt successfully. Too much air circulation and not enough humidity and the exoskeleton can harden during ecdysis which causes the molt process to "stall" and the insect die as a result.....

...***note: I am just a hobbiest that reads alot about roaches, and these are just my opinions.... despite my rather large collection.
