Maritime Earwig, Seaside Earwig
Anisolabis maritima is a large earwig in the littoral zone of marine and estuarine habitats. It was first described from the Mediterranean (Italy) in 1832. It is probably native to the Mediterranean but its native region is uncertain due to its long history of transport by shipping. It is found throughout temperate to tropical coastal habitats on all continents and many islands. It was probably transported by humans over most of its present range.
