Toothpick Grasshopper - Achurum carinatum - female

Toothpick Grasshopper - Achurum carinatum - Female
Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, USA
June 24, 2004
This photo was taken at the Frenchman's Forest Natural Area. I'm sure the latin name is listed in "Florida's Fabulous Insects".

Longheaded toothpick grasshopper--Achurum carinatum
Achurum carinatum--Longheaded toothpick grasshopper, I think. There are some similar looking grasshoppers in a different subfamily, but I think this looks like the illustration in the pdf version of Grasshoppers of Florida, the section on Stridulating Slant-face Grasshoppers. I don't have the print version in front of me.

Lovely creature!

I have the book Florida's Fabulus Insects, it is lovely, but does not include any Latin names. (I wrote the author, Mark Deyrup, about that, and he said it had been an editorial decision.)

I added a guide for this species.

Thanks again Patrick, I got another shot of a nymph that I will also add when I get the chance...
