Romalea microptera, the Eastern lubber grasshoopper;
Collier county, Florida (10 June 2016).
The foil to many home horticulturists, the Eastern lubber grasshopper is a very large species that carries with it an equally large diet. The species can do quite a bit of damage to home gardens in a fairly short period of time, especially when they swarm (as they sometimes do). A strong, resilient, and robust species.
