Cool finds in Ontario

Hi everyone! Just wanted to share a few cool findings of Ontario orthops! Two species new to Canada were recently found and posted to iNaturalist, both from extreme southwestern Ontario. Phyllopalpus pulchellus and Hapithus agitator were both species that we could have expected to occur here, based on known distributions, so it is great that they turned up! Phyllopalus is one of the prettiest (and easiest to identify) crickets in the northeast so make sure to keep your eye open for them if you are in the Windsor area! I would expect that they both will expand their range at least a little into other parts of the province! For those in the Brantford area, we are still trying to track down Orocharis saltator there so please keep your camera and ears open!
