Riparian Earwig? - Labidura riparia

Riparian Earwig? - Labidura riparia
Tucson, Pima County, Arizona, USA
September 21, 2012
Size: 2cm
Can I get confirmation that this is a riparian earwig (AKA shore earwig, striped earwig)? My wife found this in our house, specifically in the cat-litter box. I thought I was finished with moisture-loving earwigs when I moved from Wisconsin to Arizona. This is apparently a different species from the smaller European earwig.
