My two pics of this Eastern Striped Cricket, Miogryllus saussurei, fail to show the necessary head markings for ID but VB got them in her photo.  Seen at LBJ WC.  A Gryllid, or true cricket family, then a field cricket, then a Striped Cricket.  Head is more round and lacks transverse bar between eyes that would indicate genus Velarifictorus.  Western Striped Cricket is not in Texas.
