Observed on roadside vegetation through the South Nandi Forest, Kenya. April 2013.

This is an adult specimen as evidenced by the fully developed wings. Once a grasshopper has fully developed wings it is as large as it will get and will not undergo further molts.

Tetrigidae -- Pygmy Grasshopper Family
