FOUR-SPOTTED TREE CRICKET - O. quadripunctatus

Singing male Four-spotted tree cricket. 


The frame rate of the camera is nearly equal to the pulse rate of the tree cricket - producing an optical illusion of slowly opening/closing wings.  [Note: Videos will not play with Microsoft Edge]


Resting male Four-spotted tree cricket.

Top view of a singing male with the metanotal gland exposed.

This female has 2 spermatophores attached.
