Dear all,

concerning the images: please chaeck out the http://www.piclease.com
site which is specialising in nature picture.

Concerning languages: I am running a website on earwig biology, with a
database for vernacular and common names (earwigs only), see

If anybody knows more names (142 already there) for Dermaptera in any
language, please tell me! I would be happy to include that. Naturally,
the origin of this information, i.e. your email and name will appear.
