Doru? Can someone help me with the species ID? How do you tell female from male for these earwigs?

Thank you ...
... for the ID and information.

lineare is a junior syn. of taeniatum

female forceps are straight & touch @ base
true for all earwigs, at least in our area -- and that's why females ore often impossible to tell apart or even id to genus.
