Gafanhoto brasileirinho (Soldier Grasshopper or Lubber Grasshopper)

Chromacris speciosa

Notes:

The portuguese name of this grasshopper (which can be translated as "little brazilian locust") refers to its yellow and green colors, the same as the national brazilian colors.

PS. - The light brown color is located in the back of the insect.

You are right, of course. It IS a grasshopper. I was a bit sleepy... It actually is an adult specimen of these nymphs:

It is amazing the transformation they go through, the green/light brown color only appears after 5 or 6 molts.

Looks like a Grasshopper, not Katydid (if it has short antennae = Grasshopper). Do you remember?
