Stenobothrus fischeri - White-headed Toothed Grasshopper
(Eversmann, 1848)

Description: Medium-sized, green or brown grasshopper (♂ 15-18 mm, ♀ 20-26 mm). Wings are well developed, reaching the hind knee in males, but shorter in females. The stigma, if present, is at ¾ of the wing. The medial field is not very wide and extends only to the middle of the wing. The hind knee is dark, contrasting sharply with the colour of the femur. The end of the abdomen is orange. The side keels of the pronotum are slightly curved.
Similar species: Stenobothrus nigromaculatus: identification is possible on differences between song, wing venation and position of stigma.
Adults: from June to August
The song resembles to that of S. stigmaticus . The rattling sound lasts 3-5 sec. and gradually becomes louder at the beginning.
