Brief description

 

Taxonomy: Probably this species was imported around 2005 from Ethiopia. Today (2012) it is widespread kept in captivity (under the name Homoeogryllus indicus).

We reexamined (in summer 2012) specimens and identified them after Desutter (1985) as Homoeogryllus xanthographus Guérin-Méneville, 1847
