Hooded Grasshopper

Teratodes monticollis


This huge green grasshopper’s hood is bordered with yellow fringe. The tip of the antennae is yellow, followed by red and then green. It has bright white compound eyes. A small blue patch is visible just above the front legs. Length is 80 mm. From afar it looks like a leaf.


Spotted on a hill, near a row of flower pots. It was crawling very slowly.
