Dear NIKOLEXIS,
This Mole Cricket in the family Gryllotalpidae.  Except during the months from December through February, when we have an upsurge in identification requests from Australia because of the southern hemisphere summer, most of the mail we received comes from the United States of America.  We get Mole Cricket identification requests from all over the world, including Australia, Africa, North AmericaEurope and the Middle East, and though we cannot locate any submissions from South America, we are confident that Mole Crickets can also be found there.  They are subterranean dwellers that use their front legs to dig quickly through the soil.  Some species can fly and they are attracted to lights.
