Genus Antillicharis

Antillean bush crickets

link to keys Key to genera of bush crickets (Eneopterinae).

Species in this genus were formerly placed in the genus Orocharis. In 2009, Otte & Perez-Gelabert (2009, p. 221) established Antillicharis and four other new genera to accommodate the many species in their "Orocharis Group" of the tribe Hapithini. North American crickets that they assigned to Antillicharis may be distinguished from those that they left in Orocharis by an ocellar diameter greater than the distance between the lateral and medial ocelli (see drawing).
