Mole Cricket

Dear Dan,
This is a Mole Cricket, and it is one of our most common identification requests.  We receive images of Mole Crickets from Australia and many other parts of the globe.  Mole Crickets are subterranean dwellers that use their front legs to quickly did in the earth.  Some species can also fly and they are attracted to lights.
