Newly Hatched Earwigs


This batch of newly hatched first instar Earwigs (Order Demaptera) were found in a tight little group under a pot on a wooden plank. It was very moist and the babies apparently stay together for protection while very small and poorly sclerotized. These were about 4 mm in length.


Semi-rural garden, San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico at 2,200 meters.
