Hello,
This thing came crawling up my co-workers desk today! Internet searches have yielded no information. Perhaps a sort of Bristle tail? Can you identify it?
Size: 1.5″ long

Thank you!

Dear Ben,
Mole Crickets like yours, because of their large size and unusual appearance, are among our most common identification requests from all over the world.  Though primarily subterranean, Mole Crickets are capable of flying.
