Species text
Conocephalus discolor is a small brown and green bush cricket which inhabits areas of long grass, reeds or rushes in wet places. Until recent years it was almost always found within a few miles of the sea and confined to the south coastal area, with records from Dorset, Hampshire, Sussex and Kent. However it has been spreading widely and was first recorded in the extreme west of Essex in 1995. It has now colonised 37 10km squares. References
