Anostostomatidae (guest post)


Anostostomatidae – Todd T Lay

Its been a little while since my last image. Technically it still is as I am posting a ‘guest image’ from my good friend T T Lay.

The Anostostomatidae, here in New Zealand,the Weta, might be known better by some as king crickets. These are old world creatures – likely around and similar back in the Gondwanaland days, and some of the species are the heaviest of all insects.
