The smallest hopper I have ever seen - caught between two brickstones,
measuring about 3 mm in length
Thanks bayucca for ID - and yea, i assumed it to be not adult ;) Anyway the smallest I have seen so far :)
Ensifera, Tettigoniidae, Decticinae (Beissschrecken), Pholidoptera griseoaptera. It is actually not a grasshopper, but a katydid/bush-cricket (Tettigoniidae). Note the long antennae. Grasshopper have shorter antennae. And it is the nymph, that's the reason why it is so small:http://www.naturspaziergang.de/Heuschrec...http://aramel.free.fr/INSECTES9bis-3.sht...
