Trimerotropis pseudofasciata
This species is very similar to T. pallidipennis, and is also common in that area. However, the wing (unless perhaps this was in liquid preservative) would be bluish with only a faint narrow dark band (if any). Notice the high strongly lobed mid-ridge on the front of the pronotum. This is much lower on T. pallidipennis. Otherwise, they are hardly distinguishable by morhpology. Their behavior is very similar as well.

Moved from Band-winged Grasshoppers.
