Deltocephalus sonorus
This is a common southwestern species. It looks rather like a Graminella, but has more crossveins in the wings. Incidentally, the top view shows that the wing venation is not symmetric in this specimen - the central anteapical cell is divided by a crossvein on one side of the body, but not on the other.

This is a gravid female - the abdomen is swollen with eggs.

 
Thanks again!
