Grasshopper in Yellowstone #1 - Trimerotropis verruculata - male

Grasshopper in Yellowstone #1 - Trimerotropis verruculata - Male
Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA
August 22, 2010
Searched Yellowstone in the guide... It looks similar to
but I have no field guide.

I'm unsure of the etiquette posting a couple other grasshoppers... New to the site but really like it, and try my best to ID pics before requesting. I know I shouldn't overpost in the ID request, just want to know if I'm doing good things!

Your identification is correct - it is a male
You can put it in any of the categories to which you are sure it belongs. The larger categories (such as "Orthoptera" or "Caelifera" will get it noticed more quickly than if you happen to put it in the wrong genus, and if you post it to species and end up being wrong, it might not be corrected for quite some time. "ID Request" is just fine too (afer-all, that's what it's for), and it will get found there too, but there are so many posts there that sometimes if it doesn't get noticed right off, it tends to get buried by the newer posts to the point where it might go unnoticed for some time.

Moved from Grasshoppers, Crickets, Katydids.

Moved for expert attention
Moved from ID Request.

welcome to the guide
prettymuch here is how I understand it. if the photo is good and is needed for the guide.. for example if there is no photo of this grasshopper for Wy in the guide for August, it will stay probably several would..a good photo of most things may stay..sometimes I will remove even a good photo of a moth of mine..because there are others for my state for the month and I needed just the grooming of the can post directly to grasshoppers close to you grasshoppers which I understand makes it easier for the experts.

Thanks for the tips
I don't want to move it to the wrong place, so I'll leave it here for now.
