Are you able to id this Madagascan cricket? Seen on a night visit to a small nature reserve at Ifaty on the coast of south west Madagascar.

Hi again Niall,
We are contacting Piotr Naskrecki about this Ensiferan as well.
Thanks Daniel, I look forward to his thoughts.

Hi Daniel and Niall:
I believe this may be the same species as in the previous post, Colossopus grandidieri, but a sub-adult this time. Hopefully Piotr Naskrecki can confirm, correct or clarify. Regards Karl.
We are always appreciative of your excellent research Karl.
Many thanks Daniel. I would never have guessed that they were the same species! Is the pale coloured one a female and the dark one a male?
