What's this orange ridge-backed grasshopper?

Hello, saw this grasshopper trying to hide in an asphodel high (about 1,500m) on the Sierra Tejada in Malaga. It wasn't only the colour that surprised me but the ridge on the pronotum. The only species I've found to date with something similar was arphia xanthoptera, but this seems to be present in North America only. Can anyone help? 201704 Maroma  wild (41) props Arphia xanthoptera.JPG201704 Maroma  wild (46) props Arphia xanthoptera.JPG201704 Maroma  wild (48) props Arphia xanthoptera.JPG
