The Scaly Cricket (Pseudomogoplistes vicentae) is a species of Cricket in the Gryllidae family.

This species is extremly rare in Britain, restricted to two locations. The first location to be discovered, Chesil Beach in Dorset, was thought to be the only location for a long time, until it was discovered in a population between Branscombe and Beer in Devon. This species is named for the small scales which cover the legs. This small species is chestnut-brown to grey in colour.
