Moved from Earwigs.

could you please remeasure it [w/o froceps]?

Didn't get a measure and I didn't collect this bug. Only estimated size, which is why I put that in remarks rather than size. Took a few shots while out shooting moths.

thanks --the neat specimen looked collected,
...thus the request; i took the liberty to delete the size estimate: only measured size data help, otherwise the field is better left blank (estimates are, more often than not, misleading, and the relevant diagnostic differences are usually of the order of tenths of a mm, rarely a millimeter or two)
suspect a Vostox, but not sure yet
