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!
May be same...http://www.ccwild.com/blog/?p=3990
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.
Similar to this one?http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/808...
