Jayanti – New Species of Cricket
About the New Spider Cricket:
♦ In 1897, a new species of cricket was discovered under the genus Arachnomimus Saussure
♦ Jayanti has resulted in the creation of the new subgenus ‘Indimimus.’
♦ The males of the new Jayanti subgenus are unable to produce sound, and their females lack ears.
♦ Cricket, any of about 2,400 species of leaping insects found throughout the world and distinguished by the male’s musical chirping.
♦ Their bodies are mostly cylindrical, with round heads and long antennae. A smooth, robust pronotum is found behind the head.
♦ Crickets are easily identified by their loud calls, especially at night. Male crickets make this sound by rubbing their wings together in order to attract females.
♦ Females use their legs’ ears to listen to these calls and approach males for mating and reproduction.
