Yes..you are right... Its not applicable in Mole crickets..!!
I've never heard them referred to as fork-tailed. There are fork-tailed bush katydids, though.
I know its Mole cricket.. they also called Fork tailed..!!
Ashish, look at the front legs. They're fossorial, adapted for digging. Only the mole crickets have this adaptation, it's characteristic of mole crickets. Definitely not a bush cricket.
Fork tailed bush cricket.
Could you add location of this mole cricket = Gryllotalpidae
Definitely a species of mole cricket.
