Dichromorpha elegans, the Elegant grasshopper;
Volusia county, Florida (14 September 2014).
The aptly-named Elegant grasshopper is a less commonly noticed species ranging along stretches of the southeastern coastline and throughout much of the Florida peninsula. On iNaturalist, there are also a handful of observations noted as far west as Texas along the Gulf coast. They apparently prefer wet, marshy areas and are typically active in adult form during the summer and early autumnal months. This is not a species I see a lot of, so every encounter is all the more special!
