Could you please help me identify this cricket? It was very large!
Your individual looks identical to this Cricket from South Africa we posted early this year. We never positively identified that individual. We would check iSpot, our best site for South African identifications, but that site is currently unavailable.
Now that iSpot is back online, we are pretty confident that your Cricket is a Raaskriek or Giant Burrowing Cricket in the genus Brachytrupes. We can also update our earlier posting with that information.
