Pyrgomorphidae? - Stenacris vitreipennis - female

Pyrgomorphidae? - Stenacris vitreipennis - Female
Gainesville, Alachua County, Florida, USA

Pyrgomorphidae is a family
(or subfamily - depending upon author) of grasshoppers that is found in tropics and subtropics around most of the world, but they are not found north of the Mexican border, and so do not occur in the area covered by BugGuide. Some do resemble Stenacris in shape, but not any American ones that I'm aware of.

Moved from Grasshoppers, Crickets, Katydids.

Is that a bush cricket?

Moved for expert id
Moved from ID Request.
Pyrgomorphids don't occur in the U.S. I suspect this is Stenacris vitreipennis.
