sandy-looking grasshopper nymph - Spharagemon cristatum

sandy-looking grasshopper nymph - Spharagemon cristatum
Highland Haven, Burnet County, Texas, USA
May 16, 2014
I wsa wondering if this could be a 2-3rd instar Spharagemon cristatum. It does have bright red hind tibiae, definite black crossbands on its femur, very hairy all over, what appears to the start of the deep pronotum cut and possibly the indent on the top of its head. Many thanks for your time and help....Denise K.

Spharagemon it certainly is
I believe cristatum is your only choice for a nymph at that time of year.
