Phrynotettix tshivavensis
Hi, The other species, P. robustus, is not found so far west, so this is an easy one to pin down. Looks like still a nymph.

New page needed
I don't see a guide page for this species, so I placed it in robustus. It's not the greatest image, but appears to be the lone representative on Buggguide so far.
