Ozark Mountains, Searcy County, Arkansas, USA July 4, 2007
I'm finding several dead grasshoppers ... like half a dozen yesterday. Most all are clinging to the upper section of a plant or stem. There's no obvious signs of a fungus. I'm just wondering if there's some parasite, fungus or whatever that is known to cause this.
