7003500 - Labidura riparia - female

7003500 - Labidura riparia - Female
Anahuac NWR, Texas, USA
April 26, 2007
Size: ~5/8"

Moved from Earwigs.

This specimen is unlike any species reported from the US except Labidura riparia. There's always the possibility of an unreported visitor from elsewhere in the world, but I think this is enough to tentatively move it to the species page.

it's a female
[maybe Labidura]
[added 12/5/08] Labiduromma sp. (M. Cherniakhovsky det.)

...appears to be a fossil (extinct) genus

funny; thanks --
i'll ask him about this weird ID

Didn't I have this as Isolabi
Didn't I have this as Anisolabis?
Is this incorrect.
I don't know where Labiduromma came from.

this can't be an Aniso~
--they are apterous

I vote for Labidura
I don't think there's anything else in our area with 25-plus antennal segments, let alone this color pattern on the tegmina
