IMO C
Here comparison is between grasshoppers and crickets; hence, "despite their commonalities" must modify 'grasshoppers and crickets'
B and C remain

Between B and C -
B is wordy (unnecessary 'being') and unclear - constitute Caelifera and Ensifera
in C - constitute two distinct suborders, Caelifera and Ensifera. is CLEARER

Grasshoppers, despite their commonalities, and crickets actually constitute two distinct suborders, Caelifera and Ensifera.

A) Grasshoppers, despite their commonalities, and crickets actually constitute two distinct suborders, Caelifera and Ensifera.
B)Despite their commonalities, grasshoppers and crickets actually constitute Caelifera and Ensifera, being two distinct suborders.
C) Despite their commonalities, grasshoppers and crickets actually constitute two distinct suborders, Caelifera and Ensifera.
D)Grasshoppers and crickets actually despite (actually MUST modify constitute -> despite something common, X and Y actually constitute difference..) their commonalities constitute two distinct suborders, Caelifera and Ensifera.

E) Despite their commonalities, Caelifera and Ensifera are actually two distinct suborders, which grasshoppers and crickets constitute.
Modifier error- commonalities are between grasshoppers and crickets not Caelifera and Ensifera

what is OA ?
