|Immature D. asynamora|
Diestrammena asynamora is a species of cave cricket in the family Rhaphidophoridae. It is native to Asia, including Korea. In English-speaking countries it is known as the greenhouse camel cricket or greenhouse stone cricket for its propensity for living in greenhouses. Typical of cave crickets, it is a scavenger of dead insects and other organic material.
People in the US were asked to survey their homes for presence or absence of camel crickets such as those of this genus and return photos and/or specimens to the University of North Carolina for further research. Researchers have found that introduced Diestrammena camel crickets were reported much more commonly than the native North American camel crickets of the genus Ceuthophilus.
