I would love to find out what type of grasshopper this is! From looking at some pictures on your website, I thought it looked rather like a toad lubber. I found it in rocky desert soil, where it was very well camoflaged, and it just sat very quietly while we examined it.

Yes
I'd say it's a female Phrynotettix robustus
