Pine Tree Cricket - Oecanthus pini - female

Pine Tree Cricket - Oecanthus pini - Female
Marlton, Burlington County, New Jersey, USA
September 13, 2008
Size: Maybe around 17 mm?
Came to the light at night. I think that this may be Oecanthus pini (Pine Tree Cricket) female.

Moved from Tree Crickets.

Yes, this is a female Pine Tree Cricket
This rusty brown color in the head, pronotum and legs are found on O. pini. The antennal markings are only half visible in the linked photo...but those that are showing do match those of O. pini. Their antennal markings greatly resemble those of Black-horned TC. What type of conifers were in the area?

 
Pines
The NJ Pine Barrens I believe are mostly Pitch Pine (Pinus rigida) and we have maybe 40-50 native trees, then we have 1-2 ex-X-mas trees planted by the previous owners.

 
Just wanted to comment ...
..this is a great photo, John.

 
Thanks
I haven't seen any this year. Just narrow and various nymphs, but based on the date of this image maybe I will have some soon.
