This is a male Davis' tree cricket.  Note the pale limbs and golden patch on the head.   The black markings on the antennae look like an upside-down exclamation point !   Hence the name, O. exclamationis


Note the silvery yellow-green color and long hindwings.

Note the long and low profile.

When Davis' tree cricket males lift their wings to sing, they display long narrow tegmina (wings).



This is a female Davis' tree cricket.  Note the milky, pale limbs.  She also has a golden patch on the top of her head.
