Gryllus texensis

Binomial name
Gryllus texensis
Cade and Otte, 2000

Gryllus texensis is a species of field cricket identified by William H. Cade and Otte in (2000). Cade and Otte clarify that field crickets collected in the Southeastern United States from Florida to Texas identified as Gryllus integer, were in fact misidentified, and should have been classified as G. texensis. Morphologically, Cade and Otte found no differences between G. texensis and Gryllus rubens, however, their call song structure was significantly different (see Gray and Cade (1999)).


  • Taxonomic identification of G. texensis (Cade and Otte, 2000)
  • Phylogenetic description showing G. rubens and G. texensis as closest relatives based on mitochondrial DNA (Huang et al. 2000)
