Singing - Phyllopalpus pulchellus - Male
Coatesville, Chester County, Pennsylvania, USA
October 2, 2014
I can't believe that this is the second Red-Headed Bush Cricket I have caught singing. I never thought I'd get to see one, let alone two. It was under a leaf at first and it was so dark. It is an overcast day today so I was so worried that I wouldn't get good pictures. I finally attempted to move the leaf from over top of him, and somehow he didn't spook. He stopped singing temporarily but soon resumed. I was delighted! Not sure if you want them for the guide, but I just HAD to share. I am developing a deep love for these little crickets! It's times events like this that remind me why I love Entomology so much! :D

awesome shots!
This is a great depiction of the clear left wing vs the dark right wing; apparently modified for stridulation.

These are one of my favorite crickets as well. I wish we had them in Maine.

 
Awww..
I feel for you. :/
I love these crickets' song. I took a video the first time I saw a male displaying for it's mate. I wanted to share the video, but I don't think you can do that on Bugguide.
Now whenever I hear them sing, I feel so relaxed and happy and I picture them.
