Brownish red camouflaged grasshopper - Circotettix rabula - male Wrangler Grasshopper (Circotettix rabula)? (additional photos) - Circotettix rabula - male Wrangler Grasshopper (Circotettix rabula)? (additional photos) - Circotettix rabula - male

I should add that this would be subspecies nigrafasciata,
and is near or at the southeastern limit of distribution for the species.

I may have moved him prematurely,
but the only species he seems to fit is Circotettix rabula, which would be at it's extreme southeastern limit there. Did he make a lot of noise when he flew? Any other photos?

Moved from Short-horned Grasshoppers.

 
Additional photos
I believe this is the one that made a noise when it flew, louder and with a sharper buzz than grasshoppers I'm used to. However, there's a slight possibility I may be thinking of one of the others in the area.

The color in the photos is accurate, even though the dominant red makes it look like the white balance is off.

These were in a highly eroded sloping area, with sparse small trees and scrub brush, about 1,500 feet elevation.

They were much more skittish than other grasshoppers in the area. I didn't see them hovering or doing any unusual flying.
