Cooloola Shortwing nymph (we think)! Spotted on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
I believe the tibia color is important for ID and would therefore confirm the Cooloola diagnisis
Cool, thanks!! Definitely the best match. : )
yeah - go with the cooloola shortwing nymph
no the baby 'beautiful methiola' is very different..
I looked at that - it looks so different from the adult version, but the juvenile is very similar.
maybe it didn't eat its greens... what about the baby version of this? http://www.brisbaneinsects.com/brisbane_...
It definitely looks like it. I don't know much about bugs but I'm sure you're on the right track - that resource you posted is great. What about Beautiful Methiola?
some sort of grass hopper? (very like 'little black-knees' but with brown legs)
Hmm, I'm not sure - the legs are the wrong colour??
