In november 2011, I sent some photos of an immature grasshopper 2011/11/24/immature-grasshopper-from-brazil/ which Karl believes it could be Zoniopoda tarsata. This mature one that my friend Paulo found, looks a lot like the image he sent us a link http://www.faunaparaguay.com/Zoniopoda%20tarsata%20PROCOSARA%20david%20gill%2026%20march%2008.jpg. I noticed little differences in the forelegs, but I still believe this must be a subspecies of Z. tarsata.

Thanks for sending this photo of a beautiful grasshopper. We believe the previous identification is correct and this is Zoniopoda tarsata.
