Striped Ground Cricket nymph - Allonemobius fasciatus - female

Striped Ground Cricket nymph - Allonemobius fasciatus - Female
Kokomo, Howard County, Indiana, USA

The closest match I could find was Striped Ground Cricket. Am I even close?


Quite likely correct
The genus is correct for sure. I'm not certain how to tell all the species apart yet; particularly the nymphs.

Moved from ID Request.

Is she a nymph?
Thank you so much for confirming genus. Is this one likely a nymph rather than an adult?

yes, this looks like a last instar nymph.
The adults often have short wings, but they are still fully developed and overlap each other in a different and more complete way. Also, the ovipositor is longer in the adults (but it varies from species to species as well).

For all of the great info!
