Javanese Grasshopper

Valanga nigricornis


It was quite a large grasshopper, mostly brown with some pink hues. The hind legs are pink with black and yellow spines. I found that this species has many color variations like yellow, green, black. Most are really pretty, the one I found is just plain brown, but I really like those pink legs.


Found outside at night. Widespread throughout Southeast Asia with more than 20 subspecies.
