Welcome. Below is a working checklist of Maine’s Earwigs.

How to contribute to this checklist: Please e-mail corrections and updates to info@vfthomas.com or send them to the address at the top of this page. A goal is to expand this page to include images and information about each species.

A little work by each of us will save a lot of work for all of us.
