Collections of the earwigfly, Merope tuber Newman (Mecoptera: Meropeidae), have been sparse. Little is known about the life history, behavior or ecology of this elusive mecopteran species. Found only in North America, within eastern forests, increased trapping records have recently demonstrated a previously undetected western expansion for this species. This paper is the first documentation of M. tuber on carrion and in Greene County, Ohio, USA and the second record of specimens collected in western Ohio. Four specimens (two males and two females) were caught using glue traps during Aug. 2010 at a carrion resource, a first trapping occurrence of this type for M. tuber.
