vicinus?
According to the keys and images available on the Singing Insects of North America, this should be Scapteriscus vicinus...However, SINA doesn't include S. didactylus.

Nice
did you have one of the whole bug?

 
Sorry...
I initially posted the images I though were needed for an ID... The "whole bug" image must have slipped my mind :)

Thanks John.

 
Either that or...
I think the color pattern on the pronotum may match with Scapteriscus didactylus in the below image:


 
Not an ID
just curious, what were you thinking... Scapteriscus vicinus (Tawny Mole Cricket)?

Wow...thanks for these great close-ups
...very informative.

 
Seconded
Very nice, Ron.
