Euchorthippus pulvinatus - Siberian Straw Grasshopper
(Fischer-W., 1846)

Description: Quite similar to Eu. declivus, but slender and lighter in colour (♂ 12-17 mm, ♀ 20-27 mm). Side keels on the pronotum are straight. The narrow wings extend to the hind knee, the Chorthippus-lobe is visible. The subgenital plate of the male is less pointed.
Similar species: Chorthippus albomarginatus, Euchorthippus declivus
Adults: from July to October
The song consists of a series of short (0.2-0.5 sec) chirps (about 50 chirps in total) at regular intervals, which become gradually louder.
Habitat: Sandy grasslands and hillsides. Poor flying ability.
Widespread and quite common in lowlands and hills (e.g. Mezőföld, around Budapest, Duna−Tisza-köze).
