Author's note: A bit of internet research helped us identify our perpetrator as a male tree cricket, a hard-to-see, but vociferous member of the family Gryllidae (true crickets), subfamily Oecanthinae (tree crickets), and genus Oecanthus (common tree crickets).
Insects consumed were from the following taxa: Order Hymenoptera, Families Formicidae and Apidae; Order Coleoptera, Family Scarabaeidae; Order Orthoptera, Family Gryllidae; Order Collembola; Order Lepidoptera, Family Pyralidae; and Order Diptera.
Subjects were fed live crickets (Family Gryllidae) that were dusted with vitamin supplements (RepCal, Victoria, Australia) twice a week and were provided with water ad libitum in small bowls, except during testing periods.
