Oecanthus from Dogwood twig - Oecanthus forbesi - male

Oecanthus from Dogwood twig - Oecanthus forbesi - Male
Pleasant Prairie, Kenosha County, Wisconsin, USA
August 8, 2008
This is an adult male which emerged from this Red-twig Dogwood twig. I'm curious about the pale brownish spots at the outer lower portion of the 1st antennal segment.

Note
After work by researchers who analyzed songs of tree crickets in multiple states, it is now generally accepted that greenish tree crickets with dark on the antennae, head, pronotum and/or limbs - that are west of Ohio - are Forbes' tree crickets.

(This much black rules out Prairie tree cricket)

I've been studying tree crickets for 13 years now....and still have never seen another one with those extra dots on the first antennal segment.

Moved from Oecanthus. I'm curious about the pale brownish spots at the outer lower portion of the 1st antennal segment.
