Roesel's bush-cricket
Roesels Beissschrecke
Decticelle bariolée

Family: Tettigoniidae
Subfamily: Decticinae
Size: 14-26mm
Distribution: Europe, Asia

One generation a year

Both male and female adults are normally brachypterous.
Brachyptery is an anatomical condition meaning that an animal has very reduced, non-functional wings
Roesel’s bush-crickets have a preference for ungrazed grasses, with tall swards, which are a component of its diet. Other parts of their diet are grass seeds and smaller insects. They also have a preference for humidity, and thus require grasslands which remain reasonably undisturbed.

Due to its affinity for tall grasses, they can be found in a variety of habitats, including long swards at the edges of roads, field borders and pasture
