Big Green Grasshopper - Schistocerca lineata - female

Big Green Grasshopper - Schistocerca lineata - Female
Moab, UT, Grand County, Utah, USA
July 25, 2010
Size: 3" / 7-8cm
Uncommon to find the "stripey-eyed kind" like this down here.

One of the green type of "Spotted Bird Grasshopper"
that is common west from the Rockies - Shistocerca lineata. Ironically the name means "lined", and the insect is striped, so I'm not quite sure why it's called "spotted". They do often have lots of tiny dots, and the occasional oblong splotch of yellow, but rarely much of anything most people would call "spots".
