Common Groundhopper Tetrix undulata (Sowerby, 1806)
Crickets and Grasshoppers belong to the order Orthoptera and the current UK list contains around 30 species, including several known migrants/accidentals. Nottinghamshire currently has 15 species on it's list and although the Common Groundhopper is fairly widespread around the Sherwood Forest area, we have found this species much less often than Slender Groundhopper. Groundhoppers are much smaller than adult Grasshoppers and easily missed.
