This one seems to be a much brighter green than most others in here...

Moved from Frass.


I think I was too quick in initially placing this image in the Cattail Toothpick section.


Not an ID
But see comment on other page
Also, compare length of head with comment in "See Also" section on Info page.

I think you are correct
The head does seem too short to be the Cattail Toothpick Grasshopper.

Thank you for bringing those points to my attention :)

I will be going back to the same location in a little while. If I see this one again, i will look for the spike between the front legs :)

Thanks again
