Grasshopper?

Description:

Some species of grasshopper; length < 1.5 inches; height ~.5"; colors black body/orange spots

Habitat:

Ostional Private WildLife Reserve (O WildLife); Dry tropical forest; pacific lowlands; Rainy season;

Notes:

Spotted several hundred bunched on a leaf. I was advised at the moment of the observation that this swarm is likely going to attack our fruit orchard. Looking at pictures, it looks similar to the Romalea microptera
