STAURODERUS SCALARIS

Gebirgsgrashüpfer
Criquet jacasseur

Family: Acrididae
Subfamily: Gomphocerinae
Size: 18-21mm(male) 23-27mm (female)
Habitat: Dry and stony mountain-meadows
Distribution: Alpine areas

This specimen seems to be male according to its coloration.

In Germany this species is on the red list (Cat 1). In the alpine reigions of Switzerland there are still some bigger populations.

In my archives there are many species of Grasshoppers which I cannot identify.
I want to show them however in hope that somebody may help.

Thanks a lot to Peter Roos (batu) for his kind help and his suggestiuon for an ID.

Liebe Anne,
ein schönes scharfes Foto vom Grashüpfer.
Ich tippe auf Stauroderus scalaris, die im Wallis nicht selten ist.
Erinnert mich gleich an die fotografische Heugümper-Jagd mit Dietrich und dir.
Schöne Grüße, Peter

P.S. Könnte in diesem Sommer ggf. wiederholbar sein?!

Hello Anne
A superb macro.
Fantastic sharpness and colour.
Like also your chosen angle to capture this Grasshopper.
Best wishes,
Samiran

Liebe Anne,
grandiose Nahaufnahme dieses kleinen Grashüpfers auf felsigem Untergrund! Perfekte Details, feine wohlgesättigte Farbwiedergabe, ein für die plastische Wiedergabe sehr vorteilhafter starker Kontrast von Licht und Schatten, idealer Farbkontrast des neutralgrauen Hintergrunds, monumantal raumfüllende Diagonalkomposition.
Freue mich auf weitere Grashüpfer aus Deiner Sammlung, zu deren Bestimmung sich hier gewiss gute Experten finden werden.
Mit Dank und herzlichem Gruss,
Peter
