General Species Information:
Found in the Adelaide Hills and possibly elsewhere
Similar to Kosciuscola sp, but as you can imagine from the name, they are an alpine species.
Was thought to be Praxibulus sp for a while, until we found Perloccia evittata in the book/grasshopper bible "A Guide to Australian Grasshoppers & Locusts".
They can be completely green, completely brown or a mix of green & brown as shown here.
