Grasshopper ID?

Anyone know what species this critter is? Not seen one of these on my local walks before. She had extremely long antennea (I always thought grasshoppers had short ones) and she doesn't look like a cricket............Appears to have a short ovipositor too so I'm assuming it's a she! Any help would be great, thanks!

    It's a male Long-winged Conehead Conocephalus fuscus, and so a bush-cricket.  At the end of the abdomen are the cerci, not an ovipositor.  The female of this species has a long ovipositor.
