Going back through images I noticed these and had to look again
I think I jumped the gun and goofed. He is P. atlantica, but the dark markings are less developed and contrasting than usual, though still more in keeping with this species. Also, the antennae aren't pale-ringed (which they usually are in P. clavuliger).

Moved from Olive-green Swamp Grasshopper.

That's what he is
The coloring is slightly unusual; in this species the black bar behind the eye usually goes back further.

Moved from ID Request.

Hi, this is just a guess but it may be related somehow. You can search the Genus or above if you think it looks similar.
