Good morning from Cape Town !
I found this lovely little chap at Cape Point at the weekend, so he’s a deep southern African spring lover, and I cannot figure out what he can be. I think maybe he is a juvenile something, but none of my resources have anything to say that the bugs I would expect to find here start out with thes little pink protuberances on their bodies.
Any assistance with identification would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Cathy,
We were only able to locate one posting on iSpot that looks like your immature Grasshopper, and it is identified as a member of the family
Thericleidae, but the other members of the family do not look similar.
