Insight into Great Green Bush Cricket (Tettigonia viridissima): 40 – 55mm long, with the males being smaller than the females, it is the largest cricket to be found in the UK. The female can be determined by her long ovipositor (see photo above right) which they use to lay eggs in the ground.
They are fairly common in the south of the UK particularly along the south coast and the adults can be seen between July and November.
