I do not have the species name of this grasshopper. Any help would be grateful.
This grasshopper came to rest on freshly cut jackfruit. Half of the jackfruit is on raised cement floor and the other half on the lawn to let the white sticky latex to drip.

Scientific Name: Artocarpus heterophyllus
Family: Moraceae
Common Names: Jackfruit, Jakfruit, Jaca, Nangka; in Thailand, khanun

The tree is handsome and stately, 30 to 70 ft (9-21 m) tall. All parts contain a sticky, white latex. Short, stout flowering twigs emerge from the trunk and large branches, or even from the soil-covered base of very old trees. Largest of all tree-borne fruits, the jackfruit may be 8 in to 3 ft (20-90 cm) long and 6 to 20 in (15-50 cm) wide, and the weight ranges from 10 to 60 or even as much as 110 lbs (4.5-20 or 50 kg).

Nice upside down image of this rather familiar grasshopper, JC. I have seen this insect frequently in India during summer time. Is bad for standing crops.
Very good POV, focus and colours.

Hello Jitti!
Very interesting fruit! The fruit as a bg is great here! Focusing and details on the grasshopper are very well also. Interesting shot!
Thank you,

Salut Jitti

Hi Jitty!
I see a very strange for my place fruit and a rather common but wonderfully photoed grasshopper. Your macroes are masterpieces.

Super sutnning Jitti!
Excellent DOF and stunning on details!
Very interesting upside down POV!
Very good sharpness and colours!
5* and TFS!

Hello Jitti,
Very interesting shot! I like the upside down composition a lot. The details are very good and a bit gloomy lighting works well.
I like it!

Hello Jitti,
Very nice picture! I like the textures and colours. Maybe if you rotate 180º the image could be better, but´s only my opinion.

Hello Jitti,

I think this grasshopper is an Oxya sp. (Acrididae, Oxyinae).

Best regards,
