Grasshopper - Arphia xanthoptera - female

Grasshopper - Arphia xanthoptera - Female
Auburn, Lee County, Alabama, USA
September 16, 2005
I would guess this specimen is in family Acrididae but not sure. Comments welcome.

Looks very similar to
the Autumn Yellow-winged Grasshopper, Arphia xanthoptera in my Field Guide.

 
I agree.
The "crested" pronotum is very distinctive for Arphia xanthoptera. Nice image!
