Coffee Locust

Aularches sp.

Description:

Coffee Locust or Milkweed Grasshopper is one of the members of the family Pyrgomorphidae, commonly called the Toxic Milkweed Grasshoppers because many members of the family feed on milkweed, storing the toxic compounds from the plants in their own bodies as a defense mechanism.

Notes:

this is my spotting #600
