Dr. Hamilton
had to dig, wholly fascinated by this hopper, please see comments on near Cuerna stuff I dug up at the set of 4 images from 4/29/11 as also posted here for your perusal. Also found a 1928 record for C. sayi at the Albany Pine Bush (Karner) which would be the contiguous glacial lake inland barren's about 40 miles to the south of this individual.
Looking forward to seeing what you think!!
