flightless bush crickets
|Key to genera of bush crickets (Eneopterinae).|
Brown, sedentary crickets with hindwings shorter than forewings; foretibia with anterior tympanum but without posterior one. Length 9-19 mm.
Identification of species
The three North American species of Hapithus can be separated by comparing the length of the forewings with the length of the pronotum.
Except for the restless bush cricket (H. agitator) in south Florida, U.S. species have one generation each year; eggs are the overwintering stage.
