a slim, boldly striped short-horned grasshopper in green & cream, about 4 cms in length. The antennae should be straight and the feet are not really grey; this fellow got caught up in a spiders web but managed to escape taking a portion of the web with her. It is probably a female as the end of the abdomen appears straight and not turned up as is the case with the males
Attracted to the lights in the village shop one evening, in a small rural village in eastern Botswana. Vegetation type bushveld, climate hot, dry with summer rainfall (450mm p.a.)
I've been searching the web but I've failed to find a grasshopper with this colour pattern, which is quite distinctive.
