pretty sure this is Tetrix arenosa
Hi Sam,
This is one of the species that makes me think that the division between Paratettix and Tetrix might be artificial, or some species are misplaced. This "looks" like a Paratettix to me, but the wide fastigium (wider than the eyes) sticks out just a bit in front of the eyes; so, it's called a Tetrix.
