Spotting

Description:

Reddish translucent with dark eyes and VERY long antenna (note how they were coiled around body at rest.) Closest match I could find in inatuarlist was Falcicula hebardi, but antenna length seems quite different.

Habitat:

Found on the exterior wall by door. Wood deck below and pine straw mulched flower bed nearby.

Notes:

After photograph I disturbed it to observe motion. Combination of jump and walking on six legs, ultimately down to pine straw mulch in the flower bed near the deck.

It may be a camel cricket of some variety, but I have not found a good photo match so far. Does anyone else have any other suggestion?

looks to me like a camel cricket (they do have super long antennae)... but not sure which genus.!
