Maritime Grasshopper Group


Maritime Grasshopper Group

A nature discussion group for all things grasshopper and other orthopteroid insects. Please feel free to post all your grasshopper and allies (katydid, cricket, roach, earwig, preying mantis, etc.) discussions here. While many previous discussions for this group have been posted under "Beetles n Bugs for Birders" in the past, I thought there might be a place for this more specialized group this year. Time will tell if I made the right choice. Perhaps we can do the same for other insect groups at some point.

Jimmy, you are so right. However, I still have hope that the next few weeks MAY see big changes and perhaps even the first grasshopper of the season, most likely one of the pygmies or a Northern Green-striped.

Will do my best, Alex! I am not yet very good at doing videos, but images a bit better.

Martin, tu peux les enlever et ensuite les réafficher en suivant les suggestions de la vidéo, si tu veux. Sinon, ce n'est pas grave du tout.

Oh boy! More bugs! Thanks for this Denis. Just a note ... last year I posted my first Leafhopper ever  - Cuerna striata - on March 15, 2013. I think we are a little behind schedule this year.

Allô Martin,

Ta photo illustre une jeune Decticelle bariolée (Roesel's Bush Katydid, Metrioptera roeselii), espèce introduite de l'Europe. Sais-tu comment afficher cela comme une discussion sur le groupe?
