I found Three grasshopper at Alice Springs, Australia in February.
Can you help me identifying the Bugs.
If you can identify the Bugs, you may use the pictures on you homepage.
Signature: Just bug names

Two of your Grasshoppers, the olive green and white striped individual and the green crested individual are both quite unique looking and we thought they might be easy to identify, but that has not proven to be the case.  They are not pictured on the Field Guide to Grasshoppers of Brisbane and South East Queensland, nor are they on Oz Animals which might mean their range is limited to the Northern Territory.  We will continue to research your Grasshoppers’ identities.  We are posting the images and perhaps one of our readers will have better luck than we have had.

Identification:  Thanks to a comment from Trevor, we now know that this is a Crested Tooth Grinder, Ecphantus quadrilobus, a species we already have in our archives and which is also pictured on iGoTerra and on FlickR.

  1. Hi guys,
    Way back in 2008 I sent you pictures and details of the Crested Tooth Grinder (Ecphantus quadrilobus. Pretty sure that is what is pictured as the third species.

      • I would have been in touch sooner but I wanted to wait until after the sounds of wailing, gnashing of teeth and the rending of garments had died down after the election outcome. 🙂
