Tree Crickets information and photos
An amateur entomologist's website covering species of Oecanthinae found in the United States which includes: Observations of behavior and habitats; photographic documentation of development; links to videos of singing males, mating, ovipositing, molting, and other interesting behaviors; general range maps; notable figures in the study of oecanthinae; and tips for identification of the various species. (Remains under development as of November 2010 -- particularly in the area of anatomy. Additionally, two species have yet to be photographed.)

In the format of a printed guide; published by the Nebraska Extension Service out of the University of Nebraska.

Has identification keys, photographs of pinned specimens, and distribution maps for most species in the state. It is a good reference for identifying Grasshoppers, useful in much of the northern and central Great Plains and regions immediately adjacent.

Orthoptera of Michigan
PDF file, full title: The Orthoptera of Michigan — Biology, Keys, and Descriptions of Grasshoppers, Katydids, and Crickets.

I only see the Acrididae in that link--needs investigation. Color photos of each genus in that volume. Apparently the PDF is only part of the whole publication--too bad.

There is supposed to be a print version, quoting from the web site:
The Orthoptera of Michigan, Biology, keys, and descriptions of grasshoppers, katydids and crickets by Roger Bland. MSU Extension Bulletin E-2815, 220 pp. ISBN - 1-56525-017-6. ordering information is online at:

Grasshoppers of Wyoming and the West
Includes Key to Wyoming Grasshoppers, etc.
Link updated (again) 4 March 2014--see comments below.

Orthoptera Species File Online
From the home page:

"The Orthoptera Species File (OSF) is a taxonomic database of the world's orthopteroid insects. It contains full synonymic and taxonomic information for over 25,000 species and genera (all taxa described prior to 1998) of the Tettigonioidea (katydids and haglids),Grylloidea (crickets), Acridomorpha (locusts and grasshoppers: Acridoidea + Eumastacoidea + Trigonopterygoidea + Pneumoroidea + Pamphagoidea), Tetrigoidea (pygmy grasshoppers), and Tridactyloidea (sand crickets), as well as images and sounds for many species. A database for the Gryllacridoidea will become available in the second half of 1999. This site also includes a searchable database of entomologists working on the Orthoptera."
