Ok - looks like the snout katydids and coneheads are the same group. I think Satyen and Ashish that's definitely the group. I'll try to pin down the local species. Thanks so much!

And by "grasshopper" I clearly meant katydid ;)

It gives me a place to start though! I've had a hard time keying out grasshoppers here in Florida but I'll keep looking.

Thanks Misha. I was not sure if they were similar. Maybe they are different as you have pointed out.

Hi Satyen. Thanks for the post. I think it is similar, but the head and coloration look different. Also that post is from India and I'm not sure if our FL species would be the same.
