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
Katherine, Australia

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.
