I don't think that's a Mermir
I don't think that's a Mermiria, although they are similar in shape. This one is a Cattail Toothpick Grasshopper (Leptysma marginicollis). Note the short sturdy antennae and the clearly marked cream stripe.

 
Thanks!
I was way off, as usual....I'll move it to the guide.
