The biology and general evolution of the order is briefly overviewed and the higher classification of Dermaptera summarized, with the following new names proposed: Neodermaptera (= Forficulina auctorum), †Eodermaptera, Epidermaptera, Metadermaptera, Eteodermaptera, Plesiodermaptera, †Turanodermidae, and †Turanoviidae. A key to dermapteran genera occurring north of Mexico is provided.
