Long-winged Conehead – 19th August

Whilst looking for the Roesel’s Bush Cricket we stumbled across a population of 5 males and 1 female, including a copulating pair, of Long-winged Coneheads. We also found the Roesel’s Bush Cricket nearby.

The stridulation was much higher pitched from the Coneheads. Some members of our party could hear neither cricket, whilst some could only hear the Roesel’s, due to the frequency ranges involved. Younger people tend to hear them more easily than older people.

The Roesel’s was found in E2 whilst the Coneheads were found in E2 and D2 (at the top of the steps).
