link to keys Key to genera of sword-tailed crickets (Trigonidiinae).

Anaxipha are brown or straw-colored crickets with forewings of males showing well-developed stridulatory areas. Species of other North American trigonidiine genera lack this combination of characters. (Click the button above to access a key that separates the four North American genera.)

Walker & Funk (2014) published a 38-page study of the 13 species of Anaxipha known to occur in North American. That paper is fully accessible here.
