These crickets may be various shades of yellow, green and brown. Their legs are often reddish, with black joints on the hindlegs.
The males are smaller than the females: 12 to 20 mm long for the males and 20 to 35 for the females. The males’ wings are long, reaching to the tip of the abdomen, while the wings of the flightless females cover only three-quarters of the abdomen. They have fairly short, thread-like antennae.
