What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Insect found in Katherine, Australia
July 3, 2010
Am trying to classify my fauna and flora pics from Oz but can’t find the name of this insect. Is this a kind of hopper?
Thank you for your help

Blistered Grasshopper

Dear DucatiGirl,
In 2008, we identified this species as a Blistered Grasshopper,
Monistria pustulifera, also known as an Inland Painted Grasshopper from the family Pyrgomorphidae. The Australian Insects website has some information.
