Speckled bush-cricket

Adult speckled bush-crickets reach body lengths of 10 - 15 mm. They have a saddle - shaped, strong body, on which yellow markings are more or less visible lengthwise. Speckled bush-crickets have very short wings, especially the females, whose crescent-shaped ovipositors curve downwards. The females lay their fertilized eggs separately from each another, the eggs overwinter and the larvae hatch in the spring.
