Checklist of the earwigs (Dermaptera) of Germany

In 2001 Danilo Matzke published an annotated list of the earwigs of Germany. The occurrence of the different species in all federal states is also noted.
Matzke D. (2001): Verzeichnis der Ohrwürmer (Dermaptera) Deutschlands. Entomofauna Germanica, 5: 53-59.

The following check list is taken from this publication.
