PURPOSE:
This image gallery has been created to assist visitors with the identification of Dermaptera - earwigs.

As in every yard, there are a myriad different insects and bugs to be found, and I've barely scratched the surface - I seem to discover new visitors and residents every day of "Bug Season" (for me that's March through early October).  As I find, photograph and identify new Dermaptera, they will be added to the gallery.


PHOTOGRAPHIC LOCATIONS AND DATES:
Currently, the Dermaptera identification on this page is specific to earwigs that show up in and around my yard.  These and other Dermaptera, however, are also found in many other parts of the United States and Canada.

Unless otherwise noted, all images were taken in Northern Douglas County, Oregon.

The date each photograph was taken appears under each thumbnail image.  The sex of each specimen, if known, is also indicated under each thumbnail.
