Bark mimicking grasshopper

Description:

A tiny cryptic grasshopper well hidden on the bark of a stringybark eucalyptus. There was another larger one nearby so I suspect that was female and this one male. Only the inside of the rear legs are colorful.

Thanks Smith Zoo.
It may be a Coryphistes ruricola nymph.
