Donating to the museum

In Animal Crossing

"I actually find their voices quite soothing. On an autumn evening, when their cries fill the air... Delightful! Their appearance however, is not in the least bit engaging, and actually borders on repugnant. As for myself, I find them no better than cockroaches. Blech! Vile. Vile indeed. Truly, dirtily vile, eh wot?"

Further information

Pine Cricket Real

Matsumushi (マツムシ, "pine cricket"/"pine insect") is a species of Asian Gryllid cricket. Occasionally it is also called the waiting-insect. In western words, the species X. marmoratus is called the Southern Golden Bell or Pagoda Bell Cricket. Its song is often described as "Chinchiro" or "Chirichiro". It was once known in Japanese as the Singing Cricket; a name which now applies to the Bell Cricket. Adults emerge from late August until November. It can be found in southern Honshu, Shikoku and Kyushu and they inhabit dry and sunny plains which match their golden yellow coloring.
