Camel cricket



From the rhaphidophoridae family known as camel crickets. Exact species unknown. I found this one deep in the parking garage of national geographic.

I think this family includes cave crickets as well, but there's probably not much difference.

Here in Michigan we've always called them cave crickets. I've seen an infestation of these in an office building once. They liked the bathrooms best.

Thanks so much! Now that I've had a chance to familiarize myself with camel crickets at your suggestion, it definitely appears to be from this family!
