Psinidia amplicornis?

I don't know what to say about what is on top of the base of the abdomen,( what look like a fungal disease). Seems all individuals to have, the "yellow addition". But maybe I am wrong. I examined closely, only a few. ( See the comment here )

The yellow stuff is definitely not normal,
and it's keeping the wings from folding shut all the way. I suspect it probably is the fruiting bodies of an internal fungus infection. I also expect these critters would not have lived much longer.

Moved from Grasshoppers, Crickets, Katydids.
