Two-spotted Tree Cricket (Female)

Neoxabea bipunctata

Description:

An interesting katydid/grasshopper-like insect which walked around in a very slow fashion. It seemed as if it had adapted to low light conditions, as the body was very faded, a characteristic of living in dim light. The insect looked somewhat scaled, and had a small head in proportion to the rest of its body. It seemed like it was being harassed by a centipede.

Definitely out of this world, yet right in our backyard!

As with me; I originally thought these might've been a species of Lacewing when I first discovered them. They look like a mix of a cricket and a lacewing!

Crazy little htings.

This is a female; they have less defined wings than on the male one you found in the last spotting!
