I have noticed this grasshopper in my gardens recently.Could you please tell me what kind it is?
This large flightless grasshopper is known as the Eastern Lubber Grasshopper, Romalea microptera. There is both a light and dark variation. You may read more about the Eastern Lubber Grasshopper on BugGuide.
Thank you very much, I suspected it was an Eastern Lubber but wasn’t positive so thank you for the confirmation!
