One day back in July, this fell out of some of my pants that had been hanging up to dry.   It is probably a common earwig, Forficula auricularia (Dermaptera: Foriculidae).

Photo taken in Reading, UK, on 2010-07-26.

Greetings Mr.Tristram Brelstaff,

On behalf of The Subterranean Institute (a California licensed educational non-profit organization), we are creating an educational book of the animal life found within California’s caves called “Cave Life of California”.
We found your excellent photo of the common earwig (Forficula auricularia), in Tristram.squarespace, and we would very much like to use it in this educational book.
Would you be so kind as to give us permission/copyright for a non-exclusive, one-time use of this photo for this book project? Photocredit (photographer’s name and their copyright symbol) will be given in the corner of the photo or within the accompanying caption, and listed as a contributing photographer in the Acknowledgements. If you are agreeable, could you provide a higher-resolution image file? We can also provide a signed Photographer Permission Letter that reiterates this one-time use and the specifics of the published book, if you’d like.
The book project is a not-for-profit endeavor, and the cost of publication is expected to go well over $20,000. Profits from sales of the book will go to The Subterranean Institute.
Thank you very much for considering this,

Stephanie Hendrix
