Just for the record, I have heard of the use of "icebug" before, but 99% of the time I have heard or seen any reference to these insects, they have just been referred to as "grylloblattids". I doubt that moving them to "Rock crawler" was in keeping with the "most commonly used name" rule. WormRunner 04:03, 8 Feb 2004 (UTC)

I agree with this evaluation. I was surprised about the move after I had added that term and a few more facts. Tmesipt 2.8.04

Nice change -- a good idea. Tmesipt 2.8.04.

Thanks. Now we just need a picture... WormRunner 03:23, 9 Feb 2004 (UTC)

Merge discussionEdit

Both articles focus on very similar subjects: rock crawlers. The references at Grylloblattaria are not very clear, but judging by this and this, I have a feeling that Grylloblattidae is a suborder of Grylloblattaria, and not a suborder of Notoptera. Unfortunately, I don't have enough time right now to investigate this further. Ideas? — The Earwig @ 17:39, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

The article just says these "live in the cold on top of mountains". Does that mean world-wide? Presumably not. In that case, which continents? Jason Quinn (talk) 09:17, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
