ceuthophilus conicaudus

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

C. conicaudus can be identified by an interrupted pattern on the back and legs with distinct spikes. Some say it looks like they are wearing argyle stockings. C. conicaudus is less cave adapted than c. longipes; but, moreso than c. carlsbadensis.

They have been found in Spider Cave and a few in Left Hand Tunnel but they could be found anywhere.

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.
