Not so sure about Alien lol

Insects have been around for Many Millions of years, many are extinct the insect in that amber looks like it may be closely related to a degree to the Protodiplatyidae/Eodermaptera Family.

May be a new order/species related though..

Therefore similar to Earwig.. especially Nymph stage

BIG DAVE - Indeed! I happen to think this little fellow somewhat resembles a Praying Mantis to some degree! However, you are quite correct: this "alien" insect does share similarities with a wingless stonefly! :)

I done a bit of research and apparently it looked so alien it was given its own scientific order called Aethiocarenodea!
