  1. Grasshopper’s - 3some - ♂♂♀ 
2 male (blue tegmina) & 1 female (green tegmina) Grasshoppers sat in harmony on this culm for hours; they hear with their first abdominal segment and use vibrations to locate each other. Even when they reach maturity wings are not fully developed so they can not fly. In the rice fields they are prey to dragonflies and the local communities also collect them to eat.Caryanda spuria STÅL, 1861 Subfamily: Oxyinae Famiily: Acrididae (Feldheuschrecken) Superfamily: Acridoidea Infraorder: Acrididea Suborder: Caelifera (short-horned grasshopper, Kurzfühlerschrecken) Order: Orthoptera (Springschrecken)http://orthoptera.speciesfile.org/Common/basic/Taxa.aspx?TaxonNameID=52337

The upper-side of ♂ is green and the tegmina (hardened fore-wings) are blue-metallic while ♀ show a brown upper-side and tegmina are green. *Distribution: Java. The Genus Caryanda is widely distributed in the tropics and subtropics of the old world. *Habitat: commonly found in grasslands, in open areas and paths in the forest and in farmland (mainly paddy), 0-1200m asl.
