Name: Glidebites
Time: Early Carboniferous
Size: 5-8cm
Diet: Omnivore
Habitat: Rope trees, Gondwana

With the spread of rope trees to Gondwana by wind, some Terrabites began to climb the plants and made it their home. One species developed sails from extensions in their exo-skeleton which they used to glide from one rope tree to another. They are only small and light weight which helps them stay in the air. When they glide they climb to the highest bit of the rope tree and jump of, gliding helps them move to new locations faster and avoid ground predators.
They are omnivores feasting on new tips of the rope trees and smaller terrabites including their own offspring. Like more advanced terrabites they land their eggs out of the water, usually among the rope tree spikes to protect them.

Are these going to fill the niche of fast reproducing little flying critters like insects do?

Probably, the only other competition seems to be cephalostians.
