Grasshopper - Trimerotropis huroniana - Female
Cheboygan State Park, Cheboygan County, Michigan, USA

Trimerotropis huroniana
I had to double check my hunch before I commented. It is difficult to tell these two apart without looking at the wings, but the "look" of her was upper lakes, not lower. I had to look up Cheboygan to see where it is (you'd think I'd know, but I didn't). Anyway, this is quite some distance north of any recorded T. maritima, and smack in the middle of T. huroniana's distribution.


Trimerotropis maritima.
Pretty sure, but that is a highly variable species:-)
