      Hello Lalou, It is indeed a cricket as suggested by Morgaston (female due to the ovipositor) and the species is: Callimenus macrogaster. Best wishes Maria

              Dear Mark and BugClub,

              THANK YOU!!!
              Yes, that is her alright! Bravo!!!

              "Our" one was quite bigger than it is described in various sites  (5,5cm), and if I understood correctly probably female because of the "sting" (and size).
              We will keep searching to learn all we can about her. She impressed us.

              I emailed your group after I emailed the Greek University Entomology Dept.
              I have heard nothing from them. :-(
              I was really impressed by the work they seem to be doing in Turkey on her, based on the amount of information on the internet, compared to the 1 result we got from any Greek site which was from 1993 and was just a classification without any more information or photo.
              I hope we do better soon, as this is a measure of "worthiness" in my humble eyes.

              You have made us very happy, thank you so very much for sharing your knowledge with us in such an effective way.
              It is very difficult to search in the "dark".
              We owe you one!

              Thank you again,
              :-)
              Lalou

                  Just to set the record straight, and explain my unintentional "rudeness".

                  You migh be wondering why I only mentioned Mark in my message of thanks for his answer and help in the identification of the beautiful Callimenus macrogaster, and never Gordon and Maria who answered before Mark.
                  Very simple answer:
                  Mark's answer was in my inbox, Gordon's and Maria's in Spam.
                  I only found Gordon's and Maria's messages today by accident.
                  I apologise and hasten to make up:
                  Thank you Gordon, thank you Maria .
                  All I mentioned in that thank you message go to you too.

                  :-)
