The random number generator landed on 'rove beetles' (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae). I have three figures, none attributable to a genus or species level although Figure 1 is highly suggestive of Oxyporus sp. Figures 1 and 2 are from an unknown manufacturer from a dollar store; Figure 3 is a vintage figure from DVS, a vending machine supplier.

The angel insect, Zorotypus hubbardi.

One figure, and probably the ONLY figure of a member of the order Zoraptera, by Club Earth (Ants and Termites) [even though it is neither and ant nor a termite]. The species-level ID is mine, based on that all members of the set were based on North American species.

I Susanne, no I have not. I have a 'mini' ant by Bullyland so I assume they have larger ones but I do not have them. HOWEVER I have some large ants from a dollar store set, and many figures in that set I have come to find out over the years are modeled after the Bullyland sculpts. So, I have an idea what they may look like LOL but do not have any.

And yes, yellow mealworm is the common name for this particular darkling beetle. I have edited the post to reflect that, thank you.

Burnet moths in the family Zygaenidae. Normally for the Lepidoptera, I only do one genus per post, but since this group is so under-represented, I figure I will put the two I have for now here.

I. Erasmia pulchella niponica.
One figure (and one of the most dynamic figures in my collection), by Yujin (Insects of Japan).

II. Zygaena ephialtes.
One figure, by an unknown manufacturer. It appears to be modeled after the variety leuteopeucedanoideae.

So, next up are the grylloblattids, or 'ice insects'. The three figures here are all based on the same original sculpt (and I am not sure who originated it--it shows up periodically in bin sets). None of the figures I have seen have been officially labeled as grylloblatids, and the ID is of my assigning. I have seen them marketed as earwigs but that ID is clearly not correct. For the time being, grylloblattid makes the most sense although they are not entirely accurate (either they were given two pairs of cerci or they are females and the ovipositor is split?).

Of the three figures shown here, the one on the far left is by K&M International (Insects Nature Tube) but they others are from unknown manufacturers.
