Marbled Grasshopper Nymph - Spharagemon marmoratum

Marbled Grasshopper Nymph - Spharagemon marmoratum
Savannah National Wildlife Refuge, Georgia, USA
May 23, 2012
Found in open sun during middle of the day on gravel path in marshy wildlife refuge in the Southeast. Could this be Boll's Grasshopper - Spharagemon bolli?

Close, looks like a nymph of Spharagemon marmorata
S. marmorata tends to be most common near the coast in sandy areas. If I'm wrong, this is Trimerotropis maritima, but I don't think it is that. The appearance of a tooth at the bottome rear of the pronotum is unusual for a Spharagemon, but I think it might just be an abnormality in this individual.

S. bolli occurs near the coast, but the favored habitat is sunny patches in, and margins of Oak forests and woodlands, usually where there is some grass and leaf litter. They are often common along forest paths in the mountains.

Moved from ID Request.

 
Excellent!
So glad to have your expert eyes on this one. Thanks once again. The Grasshoppers of BugGuide must be very happy to have you help everyone know who they are.
