I looked at your pictures of mole crickets and they all appeared to have wings. We occasionally find these large insects in the soil of our garden. This one is typical size – about 1.5 inches long. No wings. It’s pretty fast running on the top of the ground and definitely seeks cramped dark places. The eyes seem mostly undeveloped. Two short appendages are on the rear of the abdomen.

We haven’t gotten a picture of a Potato Bug, also known as a Jerusalem Cricket, in a long time. We have a whole page devoted to them.
