Large Banded Grasshopper

The yellow to olive - Green Large Banded Grasshopper (Arcyptera fusca) measures about 2-4 cm. Note the black markings and the bright red undersides of the hind legs. Males and females can be distinguished by the length of the wings. While the females are unable to fly and have therefore relatively short wings, the wings of males are longer than their abdomen. The Large Banded Grasshopper feeds grasses and herbs, and in addition also carrion. In the World Heritage region Large Banded Grasshopper is wired spread on dry grasslands, meadows and clearings in dry mountain forests in the Valais.
