Invasive Species

The millipede Scolopendra morsitans is believed to be at least partly responsible for the decline of the 'Critically Endangered (CR)' St Helena giant earwig (see Labidura herculeana in IUCN Red List of Threatened Species) , giant ground beetle on Saint Helena and probably other endemic invertebrates on Ascension.
