Garden Locust Nymph

acanthacris ruficornis


Small soft and wingless mimic of the adult in body shape found living on a lemon tree. Like all locust young they jump weakly compared to the adults and emerge from egg pods laid down in soil over winter.


Found in vegitative green belts and gardens where adults are identified with the clicking sound of wings as the fly by.


May also be Nymph of Green Citrus Locusts, however it is absent in africa and found mainly in indian and eastern asia.
