There were tons of these inside a mine I was exploring today. Big groups of them along the walls. Truly the stuff of nightmares. Anyone know what they are? Some kind of spider?

Cave cricket/Camel cricket is correct. But where is this cave? Cave crickets (Ceuthophilus sp) are not reported to be in WA caves. Not a spider as there are six legs.

Definitely a cricket.  I think it is a species of camel cricket.  Only six legs so an insect and not a spider.  Scary but harmless!
