This large colourful grasshopper I had assumed would be easily identified as there were large numbers of them and in some cases very many nymphs too with a few adults. I have found 2 possible IDs but they tend to disagree though having the same genus - Chromacris.
Beside the Manu Road at various altitudes around 1000 m. This is cloud forest.
Given the number easily seen in an area commonly visited I am astonished that a definite ID is not easy to find. Following Dominik's comment I have now uploaded a photos of one with all its legs to replace the original photo (taken 2 days later) and of some with numerous nymphs around them.
