    Taxonomy: Animalia: Arthropoda: Insecta: Dermaptera: Labiduridae: Nala: lividipes
    Common Names: Earwigs, black field earwig
    David Rentz says

    his earwig is a regular visitor to lights in the rainforest as well as at inland locales where eucalyptus and acacias are dominant. Earwigs have an elaborate folding system for the large fan-like wings. Using their pinchers to aid in the folding process, the entire second pair of wings fit perfectly under the small first pair of wings (tegmina). The folding takes place in the "twinkling of an eye".
