Description

Note the yellow heart shape on its back. I have a short video clip of it flying, and the wings are almost entirely that shade of yellow, with brown at the front tip / edge. My Sierra guide IDs this as Yellow-Winged Grasshopper (arphia conspersa ramona) but iNat doesn't yet recognize this species.

The next day, I saw a Yellow-winged Grasshopper (Arphia conspersa ramona), ID'ed via a short video clip showing it in flight and my Sierra Nevada field guide book. That other grasshopper had the same "heart-shaped" bit on the upper thorax, so I'm thinking this is likely the same... but unfortunately, my ID book only shows a small side view and the focuses on the wing coloration, so I could certainly be wrong.

Side note: Arphia conspersa ramona is not currently recognized by iNat.

Looking at my Sierra Nevada guide (which focuses mostly on the wing colors, which I did not catch on camera, but does also include a small side view), I think this could be a: Sierran Blue-Winged Grasshopper (Circotettix undulatus thalassinus), Clear-winged Grasshopper (Camnula pellucida), Devastating Grasshopper (Melanoplus devastator), or Red-Winged Grasshopper (Dissosteira pictipennis) - in no particular order.

About

This is a pilot for what we hope will become a coordinated effort to document the distribution of calling insects using recordings as primary vouchers. The emphasis will be on collecting records at the county level, but there is no reason that multiple records at much smaller scales can't be recorded for parks, refuges, and personal projects.
