On my hiking trip to Eastern Samaria (north-east of Jerusalem, Israel) on April 9-10, 2010 I saw this large grasshopper nymph. It looks like something from a Spielberg movie with that ridge on its back.
Hoping you’ll help me identify it!

Hi again Ben,
Like your other unknown Grasshopper, we are going to contact Piotr Naskrecki for assistance.
Update: November 29, 2014: Female Prionosthenus galericulatus
A comment from Daria clued us in to the identity of this unusual Grasshopper and we confirmed its identity on BioLib.
