Hello insect lovers, here is one that has been through the wars and lost some limbs, but hopefully you can still tell me what he is.

Interesting insect! It is a cricket similar to a Bush Cricket, it appears to be a Tree Cricket.

Possibly Oecanthus sp.

Oecanthus rileyi is possible ..

Probably Oecanthus californicus ..

Interesting! All I know are the standard old house crickets, and it's amazing to me that this is a cricket! I looked at all of the links, and it does look like the Californicus is the one. The distribution maps have it in our area. I'll have to look for more and see if I can hear their chirp.
Thank You! Thank You!

I have the Oak Bush Cricket here, but they don't have wings like the Tree Cricket. The rest, i.e. body, head. legs looked much the same.

I tip my hat to you.
