Hi everyone, I photographed this little bug this morning hanging in to a piece of grass beside a field of Barley and I'm not sure what he/she is? I thought it might be a species of Cricket? Any help much appreciated, thanks!
Despite appearances, it's not a cricket, but one of the mirid bugs - a large family within the bugs order, Hemiptera. I reckon it's a female Leptopterna dolobrata, sometimes known as a grass bug. They have hairy antennae which I can just about see in your picture. Have a look here and see if you agree
