Cricket photographed by Alex Bach near Indigo Lake, Cuyahoga Valley National Park

Striped Ground Cricket: Allonemobius fasciatus . The cricket is more body than legs and is about the size of a fingernail. It has a small set of brown wings, which are used for chirping not flying. The specimen I found had a long pointed barb extending from the abdomen. This is an egg laying device characteristic of all female crickets. Like most small insects, it is a food source to birds, rodents, frogs, and snakes. This cricket can be found in forests, fields, and back yards. This one was photographed near Indigo Lake, Cuyahoga Valley National Park
