I  had difficulty separating this nymph of Melanoplus differentialis from the similar M. ponderosus nymph.  This one has a bit more white on the little wings and the inside of the femur has two series of black spots where the other has two heavy black spots.   Seen in big bunch grasses at LBJ WC.  Acridid.
