Two-spotted Tree Cricket Neoxabea bipunctata

Description

Shows the frantic mating ritual of Neoxabea bipunctata. The male clasps onto vegetation and hangs down, with the female grasping the male and being flung about wildly.

I suspect most Neoxabean species share this behavior. If you find a brownish or tannish tree cricket pair flailing like this, you have probably found a Neoxabean species.

Thanks, @dusty_in_vilas-tx,. for pointing out that GIFs can be submitted.

Initially encountered moving across the small road within a block of the nature center. A tourist picked it up and quickly decided he didn't want to touch it and flung it to the ground. I voiced my disapproval, gently picked it up and placed it in the brush off the road in the direction it had been traveling. One of the coolest creatures I have ever encountered.

I often find wasps inside stems with oviposition scars of Oecanthinae. The stems are opened at the end of the year - after all tree crickets would already have emerged in the summer. These wasps had been ID'd by L. Masner as Oethecoctonus oecanthi. Apparently little is known about them. I am posting these photos with the hope of finding someone who is interested in studying them. I do have some specimens in ETOH.
