I'm a very amateur entomologist (I'm actually just an old fat hippie that loves all critters).
I don't have any chops here, but I swear I've done my due diligence and tried to figure this out. I'm asking because I'm baffled. (Leg stripes are Arachnid-ish, but thorax is completely wrong ... I just dunno...)
My girlfriend sent me a pic; she swears these things were jumping out of a seasoned firewood pile and by her words "attacking".
Location: PA Pocono mountains, circa Kunkletown, heavily wooded area.
Now granted, there was a lot of drinking going on, it was "girls weekend out", and there was a hot tub. I wasn't there; so I cannot actually confirm what really happened... (Of course I wish I was there, but ... nevermind)
HOWEVER - here's a pic. You can't make this up. Or, at least, I'm not making this up ...
What is this critter? I think it's "insect" by the leg count I can see. But edumicate me; this is a new one to me and I'm very intrigued.
Many thanks best!
Perhaps some sort of "wood cricket" based on rough taxonomy of the leg configuration, and it's penchant for jumping. Pure speculation.
