    Described and named by Thomas J. Walker in 1962 (in honor of B. B. Fulton)

The Snowy tree cricket chirps rather than trill -- and the speed depends on the temperature.  On hot summer nights, they chirp rapidly.  On cool autumn evenings, they chirp much slower.  The pulse rates of the songs of all tree crickets quicken and slow down depending on the temperature -- but only the chirping rate of the Snowy tree cricket is evident to the human ear.


Note the wide distal wings, orange on the head, and black dots within white fields on the base of the antennae.
