One of my students brought this cricket to me this morning. I have tried to identify it with no luck. Any info would be greatly appreciated for me and my class.

We believe this is a Great Grig, Cyphoderris monstrosa, or another member of the genus. According to BugGuide, their habitat is “coniferous forests containing Lodgepole Pine, Englemann Spruce, and Mountain Hemlock; adults hide beneath leaf litter during the day, and become active at night, climbing tree trunks and continuing high into the branches to feed, sing (males), and mate.”
