Description:

How does one distinguish a katydid from a cricket? This website provides an answer to that question, along with samples of calls from other insects, including cicadas. The site was created by Thomas J. Walker and Thomas E. Moore, and it was designed to be of assistance to both professional and amateur biologists interested in studying singing insects. First-time visitors should scroll down to the "How to Use" section in order to get quick and concise answers from the site, such as "How to identify an unknown cricket, katydid, or cicada". On the top of the homepage, visitors can also click on the "Crickets", "Katydids", or "Cicadas" areas. Each of these areas includes a table of species, complete with links to songs, photos, distribution maps, and drawings.
