Forficul*a
is not an intertidal species. Taken by sweeping vegetation along the trails - probably feeding on flowers at Odiorne.

Oh, I see.
Was going to comment on what are obviously Anisolabis (males have the asymmetrical forceps), and question the comment on Forficula. I just now noticed the two Forficula in this image!
