Dear Ravi

I have heard from Dave Rentz, Australia, who asked Dr Sigfrid Ingrisch, Germany. The opinion is that it is Decticus albifrons (Fabricius, 1775). There's quite a lot on it on the Internet.

I am reminded to say that identification from images is always tentative, and confirmation always requires examination of samples.

Best wishes
