Yellow Grasshopper - Melanoplus differentialis
Neshaminy State Park, Bensalem, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA
August 10, 2005
Size: about 5cm long
There were several of these in an unmowed patch by one of the park trails. Looks like a short-horned grasshopper but I can't tell any more than that. The body color was a very stark golden yellow.
P.S. - if anyone can point me to a place that explains the whole "locust" vs. "grasshopper" thing I would appreciate it.
