Western tree cricket -  O. californicus

   Described and named by Saussure in 1874

Western tree crickets have three color patterns:  pale (green); pictipennis (similar to pine) and the pale brown form as seen here.


This is the pale green form.


This is another view of the pale green form of O. californicus.  This individual was found on a juniper tree in Arizona.

Here is a view of the antennae.
