Sentagnathus by Hyrotrioskjan Sentagnathus by Hyrotrioskjan
While it looks similar to scutoceratids, it's actually more closely related sicagnathids like Gladiognathus.
Sentagnathus is a nocturnal scavenger which rest in hollow, rotting roots during the day.

with the way these look i can imagine a large predator that would hunt these things but for some reason i imagine it to be like an assassin bug?

predator since they have large carapieces the assassin bugs large needle like mouth would be perfect to just stick in and suck them dry plus can these insects burrow cause that could be their defense against the larger assassin bug predator

Hey just wondering but how intelligent do these things get? They must be a few levels above earth insects, as they are in size.

They are indeed more intelligent than most insects from earth, most herbivors of Silvanus have the cognitive abilities of cows and carnivores are often similar to crocodiles or even lions.
