Description:

An Egyptian in Spain, I believe - a so-called Egyptian Grasshopper. I think the strikingly striped eye is the strongest pointer, or so says Chinery. There were several of these critters in our friends' garden in Jalon, Spain.
This individual was very large, ~ 6cms, so I think that means female.
