Can anyone identify these? They were seen in a recent trip to souther Greece and the Peleponnese.
Nosed grasshopper, Acrida ungarica ssp. mediterranea
Note the different colours.
I get these in my garden here in Cyprus; very good camouflage among dry grass and scrub.
Libelloides, perhaps L. rhomboides ssp.cretensis (I don't have a picture for that), but it is avery good match for L. macaronius
I see Libelloides in Cyprus but not often; I would like to see them more as they are as attractive as butterflies.
