    Sam Heads commented on an older version of Energy stored to amplify power: locusts:

    This image is misidentified and does not belong in Grylloidea. It is a 'pygmy mole cricket' and should be moved to Caelifera: Tridactylidae).

    The ID of this image is incorrect -- it is in fact a Jerusalem Cricket (Stenopelmatidae) and therefore does not belong in Grylloidea.

    Sam Heads commented on an older version of Leg senses sound strength and direction: grasshopper:

    This text incorrectly states that grasshoppers listen with their legs. Grasshoppers are members of the suborder Caelifera and detect sounds by means of an abdominal tympanum. Only crickets and katydids (suborder Ensifera) detect sounds by means of protibial tympana.
