I found this bug while I was burning the trash. It was hopping away when I found it.Can you tell me what it is. Sorry for the bag picture camera was going dead.
Looks like the silhouette of a Slender Mexican Grasshopper, Leptysma mexicana. It reaches about 1 1/4 inches in length and occurs in small numbers in various parts of California.
But I live in Louisiana then what could it be?
A related species, Leptysma marginicollis lives in the South.
