Singing male Pine tree cricket.  [Note: Videos will not play with Microsoft Edge]

This is a 2d instar Pine tree cricket.  Note the light rust color.  the darkness of the abdomen actually indicates he is eating well.

Note the brown limbs and the pink-tinged metanotal gland.


The spermatophore is also pink-tinged.


The abdominal segments have the same reddish-brown coloration as the limbs, head and pronotum.
