QuoteThe St Helena Giant earwig (Labidura herculeana) was the world's biggest earwig, reaching lengths of 8cm. However, this creature was declared officially extinct by the IUCN in 2014. It is thought that predation by mice and rats, and the removal of stones from its habitat for construction, caused its decline. There are more than 1,000 species of earwig worldwide, but only four are native to the UK.
Quote from: gilbertharding on January 11, 2022, 10:57:22 AMI read somewhere that pubic lice (what they used to call crabs) are pretty much extinct in The West too, due to *cough* deforestation. Although as they're the same species as the very much not extinct headlice, I don't think we need bother Chris Packham etc about it.
Quote from: ZoyzaSorris on January 11, 2022, 01:21:29 PM...although they do actually have impressive and rather beautiful wings they are rather reticent to use them - perhaps understandable given the faff it must be to fold the things up under their tiny little wing cases.

Quote from: JesusAndYourBush on January 11, 2022, 02:48:11 PMQI said they were were a different species, with the assembled cast surmising something to the effect of maybe they might meet halfway down the chest, shake hands and go back the way they came.

Quote from: JesusAndYourBush on January 11, 2022, 02:48:11 PMI the 80's I remember being told "Although earwigs have wings, nobody has ever seen one fly" which without the ability to just go on the internet it wasn't possible to verify so you just took it at face value. Having a look now it is kindof true, in that although there are species that do fly, most species are very reluctant to fly, if at all.
