Unknown Grasshopper

Unknown Grasshopper. Amazonia, Eastern Ecuador, Tiputini Research Station. This beautiful bug was in a clearing among the cabins on the research grounds, not deep in the bush. Apologies for lack of¬†entomologly skills, I don’t know the species. But this is a prime example of the saying “in the amazon,¬†common species are rare and rare species are common”

This lepidopteran, was taken on the bank of the rio tiputini.
