Schistocerca alutacea, 21 November 2010

Schistocerca alutacea, the Leather-colored bird grasshopper;
Lake county, Florida (21 November 2010).

The Leather-colored bird grasshopper is one of our lesser-seen hoppers in central Florida, though I wouldn’t consider them rare. I just don’t see too many of them. This one was spotted in Lake county, Florida, quite a bit inland and on the edge of some serious central Florida undergrowth.
