To find little treasures like this, you have to get on your hands and knees and dig through some grass litter. This is the macroterous female. Now, I'm going back out there and look for "apterous females creamy white except for pale brown along posterior margin of vertex" and " males (apterous) colored as ap. females but with a reddish stripe along anterior margin of each abdominal terga 2-7". Wish me luck!!
