Another bug from Perth WA
This bug was found in our house in the Perth Hills. It has scoop-like front "claws", wings, and a very large head. It looks a little like our "sandgropers" but it is darker and they are subterranean. It’s quite large, maybe 40-50mm long. We would appreciate any information you can give us as it looks quite alien.

Hi Amy and Erryn,
This is a Mole Cricket. Mole Crickets are in the family Gryllotalpidae. They tunnel underground and are most common in moist soil.
