This individual closely matches the description of Paragryllacris combusta in Rentz and John 1990 Invert.Taxon. 3: 1053.

This does not appear to be the same species as 3894349 and does not match the description given
   20 Dec 2018
I agree that the colouration of this individual is different to 3894349. There are other features that I didn't include in the species description that led me to suggest it is P. combusta (including relative length of ovipositor and body, fore tibia with 5 elongate spines on each margin of ventral surface, pronotum deeply sculptured). The overall form of the insect is different to other genera described in the Rentz and John paper. But I agree that I can't be confident that this individual is P. combusta given the lack of diagnostic colouration. Would you suggest we go to Gryllacrididae?

I will forward a picture to Dave Rentz for comment.

Hi Roger. I'm preparing some detailed notes (mainly for my own use) on the diagnostic features of P. combusta. I've managed to source the Karny 1937 paper which has a coloured drawing and a description of the species, which supplements the information in the Rentz and John 1990 paper. I'll compile all of this information and put it in a newly created blog on our southernforestlife.net site. Perhaps wait until I've got this together before contacting Dave.

This new notes blog on our website will provide detailed descriptions of "tricky" species. It will contain high resolution, high magnification images of key diagnostic features along with notes and drawings selected from the literature - much of which is only freely accessible if you've got institutional access. We've started the process of uploading all of the species on our home database to NatureMapr and it's clear that the species description field on NatureMapr isn't adequate for this job. For example, I included only the most obvious features for ID of Paragryllacris combusta in that field - for the sake of brevity and accessibility for the average user. There are several other defining features, mainly involving spination of limbs that can only be seen with a high resolution, high magnification image. This can all go into our notes blog. I'll let you know when I've done the job for P. combusta. You can then send Dave that link. Cheers, Paul

That's a great contribution. David thinks that the second species is named in the collection so all I have to do is to get my honorary status approved and open a few drawers at ANIC. I also think David is 'over' raspy crickets. Regards Roger

I've put together some notes drawn from the literature and my own observations on identification of genus Paragryllacris and the species Paragryllacris combusta. https://southernforestlife.net/notes/2018/12/24/paragryllacris-combusta
