A female Oecanthus laricis was found about 12 feet up in a Tamarack tree in the Oak Grove State Game Area - NW of Detroit.  She has deep brownish black head, pronotum and abdomen -- whereas Oecanthus pini would have brownish red in these areas.

Description by Thomas J. Walker.


The video below shows a pair of Tamarack tree crickets.  When a male raises his wings to sing, the metanotal gland becomes visible.
