PINE TREE CRICKET  -  O. pini


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.
