Could you help to indentify the species of this grashopper. Its size was between 5 and 10 centimeter and I was in on an island in the Gulf of Thailand between September and January.

Dear T. Brokke,
Most of our searching turned up batches of fried Grasshoppers served as snacks in Thailand. We did find a matching image on the 123RF stock photo site, but it was only identified as a “Yellow Grasshopper.” We also found it identified as a Giant Grasshopper on the 123 Naturfotos site. We also found it unidentified on Shutterstock. It is also unidentified on Alamy. Perhaps one of our readers will have better luck with an identification.
