|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I am still living in the hope that someone will be able to identify my Japanese grasshoppers. To make it a little easier this time, I have a snap which includes both male and female of the species. Also, they obviously belong to a longer-horned group.|
The nearest photo I have yet found on the web is of a Spur-throated Grasshoppers (Melanoplinae), Genus Melanoplus, but this is from ther New World and maybe a complete red herring.
This pair were active on a cool November afternoon, mating near the summit of Mount Koya, near the station for the funicular railway. The elevation here is about 900 metres.
Any clues as to the identification would be happily received.

Hi Alan. Sorry i am no help with the ID. but i will say its a fine close up of the pair. the detail and natural colours are first class. with a good POV/DOF. well done TFS.
bella foto, con buona inquadratura e sfondo.
Non sono un esperto di Ortotteri, ma la tua coppia mi sembra appartenere al Genere Miramella (Acrididae).
Su TN puoi trovare altre foto di rappresentanti del Genere Miramella.
