Well, Roy IDed the one that looks similar as Abdopus aculeatus so perhaps that's a good guess...

I downloaded it and took a look. I would say it is Abdopus aculeatus. I have kept one of these myself. I would also say that the one you have is fairly old from the size, so I wouldn't expect to live more than a few months.
