Acrididae to identify... - Spharagemon collare - Female
Granby, Quebec, Canada

While there is a chance this is incorrect,
I'm sure enough that I'm going to move it to the species page. The more mottled pattern, slightly differently shaped head, and apparently higher pronotal crest (cut at an angle) all jive with this species. I wouldn't have even hesitated, had it not been posted with the other photos (which clearly aren't S. collare). Amazingly, this seems to be the first posting from Canada for this fairly common grasshopper.

Moved from ID Request.

This is an adult female
Spharagemon, not the same individual as the other photos, and from this image I'm pretty sure it is also a different species - S. collare. Do you think you might have any other shots of this particular one?

Cheers,

Michel
