Location: Ivybridge, South Hams, South Devon, England, UK. Date: 30 July, 2018. Speckled bush-cricket, young nymph, Leptophyes punctatissima, subfamily Phaneropterinae, family Tettigoniidae. □ The speckled bush-cricket is a flightless species, and neither the male (left) nor the female has hind wings.
