Two-striped Grasshopper

Melanoplus bivittatus

Description:

A pair of pale yellow stripes running along the top of it body from above its eyes to the hind tip of its wings identify this species.

Notes:

Grasshoppers have antennae that are almost always shorter than the body (sometimes filamentous), and short ovipositors. Those species that make easily heard noises usually do so by rubbing the hind femurs against the forewings or abdomen (stridulation), or by snapping the wings in flight.
