    Actually, I believe that is a raspy cricket, possibly the species Camptonotus carolinensis, or a Carolina leaf roller.

    Agreed with Camptonotus carolinensis.

    Looks like it was already identified but it was on my house in Blair Co. Pennsylvania. Thanks everyone, it was something I've never seen before and you guys are spot on :)

    Looks like the camel crickets we have in Michigan forests. They're distantly related to the Giant weta.

    very very distantly, they're in their own family- Gryllacrididae, the raspy crickets. Not wetas, jerusalem crickets, or katydids, they're their own kind of ensifera.

    Our closest north american relatives to wetas are a different kind of silk-spinning cricket, Cnemotettix. these could literally be considered north american wetas/king crickets.
