Size: 3-4cm's

Very pretty coloration! Ive never seen that color blue on a grig before! But then again, ive only seen maybe three of them since ive been interested in crickets.

Moved from Cyphoderris.

Hump-winged grig.
I don't make up these names:-) This is either a nymph or female of a cricket-like insect in the genus Cyphoderris. Neat find, nice image! Look for males at night singing from the trunks of trees. I found a few in the Three Sisters area when I was a kid.
