The picture says it all – found near Portland, OR, at the edge of a wetland area. It was observed on a tarweed plant, as pictured. My hand is in the background for scale.
I know a few insect Orders from a class I took in college, but that’s as clever as I get with this stuff. This is your cup of tea, not mine. Can you tell me what this pretty lil’ guy is called?

This is a Tree Cricket in the genus Oecanthus. We don’t feel confident enough to identify the species, but you may research the possibilities on BugGuide.
