Earwig

Dear Benjamin,
This really is a primitive looking Earwig in the order Dermaptera.  We suspect he is a male because of the well developed forceps.  Your individual is quite distinctive and we had hoped to be able to provide a genus and species, but alas, we have not been able to locate any matching individuals online.
  Perhaps one of our readers will have better luck.
