We found these Leaf-rolling Crickets a few time in Karawatha Forest. They were all hiding in their Rolled-leaf retreat during the day. The insects in those photos could be an adult male or a nymph.

We open the rolled-leaf a bit to check what it was. The nymph came out because of our disturbed and we took the above photos. From the reference information, Leaf-rolling Cricket nymphs are more easy to be encountered because they are in much higher number than adults.
