Saddle backed bush cricket ephippiger epippiger


In this genus, the bush crickets have very small wings and the pronotum resembles a saddle (the Latin name ephippium means 'saddle of a horse'). The atrophied wings of Ephippiger species are unfit to flight and only used for the emission of sounds (stridulation).
