Phalangopsidae

provided by wikipedia EN

The Phalangopsidae are a recently reconstituted family of crickets (Orthoptera: Ensifera),[1][2] based on the type genus Phalangopsis Serville, 1831 from South America. Priority for family-group names based on this genus dates from Blanchard's "Phalangopsites".[3]

Distribution

Species in this family are widely distributed, especially southern Hemisphere (i.e. continents excluding Europe, most of N. America and Antarctica).[4] These terrestrial Orthoptera, like the majority of crickets, tend to thrive in tropical or subtropical environments.
