Eneopterinae is a subfamily of insects in the cricket family (Gryllidae). It is one of several groups referred to in American English as "bush crickets" (along with Trigonidiinae[1] and Hapithinae[2]). Of the more than 500 species that make up this subfamily, most occur in moist, tropical habitats. These insects are medium to large and brown or gray in color. They eat plant leaves, flowers, and fruits and can occasionally cause economic damage. Their eggs are deposited in pith, bark, or wood. Eneopterinae show a great diversity in stridulatory apparatus, signals emitted, and associated behaviors.


Eneopterinae is divided into 5 tribes.
