I recently found this in a meadow near where I live in Grand Case, Saint Martin (French West Indies). It seems to be a cricket nymph, but beyond that I’m not sure. Any ideas?

Possibly Bush Cricket

Hi Mark,
We believe this may be an immature male Bush Cricket in the subfamily Trigonidiinae, but we are not certain.  We will try to contact Katydid expert Piotr Naskrecki to get his input.

    I submitted this a while ago, and I think it is probably Carylla proalbifrons, formerly Orocharis proalbifrons.
