Family Acrididae: Psinidia fenestralis? - Spharagemon marmoratum - male

Family Acrididae: Psinidia fenestralis? - Spharagemon marmoratum - Male
Naples , Collier County, Florida, USA
March 1, 2012
These three grasshoppers were in a sandy scrub area. All were well-camouflaged against the substrate. Each has a keel on the pronotum, a flesh colored abdomen, and banded femora. I would like to have confirmation that this species is Psinidia fenestralis.

These are Spharagemon marmorata
They have red hind tibiae, thinner antennae, and yellow hind wings. Psinidia have non-red hind tibiae (usually black and yellowish), very thick antennae, and orange hind wings. They do look similar and they often occur in the same places.

Spharagemon marmorata
Thank you so much for the identification and for the details describing the differences between Spharagemon and Psinidia.
