Gryllidae

  True Crickets. Most are dorsoventrally flattened. Many species are sexually dimorphic for wing length. The varying ovipositor morphology suggests species are specific to a particular type of leaf, (see Rentz, page 117). Species with unsculptured ovipositors lay their eggs in the ground.

Most species pictured have their DNA in the Barcode of Life Database.
