ceuthophilus carlsbadensis

The C. carlsbadensis field should be used to record stations where the ceuthophilus carlsbadensis species of cricket is observed.

Larger than longipes and darker in color, this cave camel cricket is reddish brown with a noticeably humped back. The antennae are not exceptionally long and they have two dark black eyes which appear as dots on the head. They are usually slow moving and can be seen on the walls, floor or breakdown. Observe closely and carefully to see them as they can sometimes be found in small cracks or vugs.

The least cave adapted of the three camel crickets on the CCNP Cave Inventory Form, c. carlsbadensis lives in food rich areas.
