However, two earwig lineages – Arixeniidae and Hemimeridae – are epizoic on Cheiromeles bats Revised 3 February 2016 and Beamys and Cricetomys rats respectively. Both of these epizoic families are comprised of viviparous Accepted 11 March 2016 species. The monophyly of these epizoic lineages and their placement within dermapteran phylogeny Available online 24 March 2016 has remained unclear. A phylogenetic analyses was performed on a diverse sample of 47 earwig taxa for ﬁve loci (18S rDNA, 28S rDNA, COI, Histone 3, and Tubulin Alpha I).
