A sweet-looking, good sized grasshopper.
Yeah they're here now! never seen one like it, was really surprised. :) thanks for the info.
Hi Joshua, nice series! Now, I know the range for this species isn't supposed to reach California but I don't think there is any other species of grasshopper this could be (they are one of my favorites!). I think yours is an adult female green phase. She looks like this:http://bugguide.net/node/view/184091I saw both brown and green nymphs of this species last summer here in NY. They are super cute nymphs (in my opinion): http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/148...http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/139... You might want to consider submitting this to Bugguide.net. They don't have any records of them occuring in California and they could verify the species.
