    Yes it is. Apparently in other parts of the country people use that term for beetles or woodlice, but in every part of California I've gone bugging in, born and raised Californians refer to Jerusalem crickets as potato bugs.

    Also this: http://www.google.com/search?q=potat...N&tab=wi&uss=1

    It's a potato bug.

    potato bug being a common name, I wouldn't at all be surprised to find that people use the same name for several different species.

    Also, "going bugging" hehe, I like it. Makes me wanna make a sign with a clock: "Gone Bugging, be back in..."
    Grow to learn, learn to grow.

    huh, considering I've never seen this cricket before, this surprises me.

    silly Californians.
    Potato bug may refer to:
    Jerusalem cricket, an insect
    Woodlouse crustacean, or more specifically, Armadillidiidae or pillbug
