Another search for an obscure piece of information. At this time of year I hear a cricket or katydid with a very distinctive call which reminds me that autumn is approaching.

I have in the back of my mind that on one COG excursion in the 1990s we heard this and someone called it an 'Autumn Peeper'. Does anyone know the scientific name, or even the family, of this insect?
