Indoor Insect - Euborellia arcanum

Austin, Texas, USA
July 18, 2015
Size: ~1inch

Moved from Ring-legged Earwig.

Pretty sure it's this newly described species, Euborellia arcanum. They are much larger than your standard annulipes and have different leg markings in nymphs, as well as a more rectangular pronotum.

Moved from ID Request.

Interesting, thanks!
