Amino acid composition of the bushcricket
spermatophore and the function of courtship feeding: Variable composition suggests a dynamic role of the nuptial gift.
Dr Montealegre-Z and Professor Robert examined the anatomical construction of the fossil's song apparatus, and compared it to 59 living bushcricket
Experts say the insects are moving further north due to climate changes and, despite the poor weather this year, the Roesel's Bushcricket
and the Long- Winged Conehead seem to be thriving in parks across the borough with sightings in Balsall Common, Monkspath, Hampton-in-Arden and Dorridge.
and the Long-Winged Conehead were both found by one of Solihull Council's park rangers while working in some of the borough's parks.
For example, female bushcrickets
(Xederra charactus) adjust mate sampling tactics in response to male density and are less likely to reject males under low mate density conditions (Lehmann, 2007).
The council says that although most creatures travel south in the search for warmer climes, the pull of Solihull is proving too much to resist as another Bushcricket
was found in Lavender Hall Park, in Balsall Common.
