There are over 900 species of cricket. Here are some sub-families of cricket. * Eneopterinae - (true) bush crickets * Gryllinae - common or field crickets; brown or black; despite the name, some of them enter houses (e.g. Acheta domesticus, the house cricket). This family includes the genera; Gryllus, Platygryllus, Acheta and Gryllodes * Nemobiinae - ground crickets * Oecanthinae - tree crickets; usually green with broad, transparent wings; frequent trees and shrubs. * Phalangopsinae * Podoscirtinae - anomalous crickets * Pteroplistinae * Trigonidiinae - sword-tail crickets In addition to the above subfamilies in the family Gryllidae, several other orthopteran groups outside of this family also may be called crickets: * Mogoplistidae - scaly crickets * Myrmecophilidae - ant crickets * Mole crickets * Tettigoniidae - katydids or bush crickets * Cave crickets (also called camel crickets) * Sand crickets * Mormon crickets * Weta crickets * Jerusalem crickets * Parktown prawns
