My bicycle trip trough Tunisia
Near the magnificient Roman ruins of Sbeïtla I ran into this strange grasshopper (Euryparyphes sitifensis; Brisout de Barneville 1854; Pamphagidae). It is a female, the males have a shorter abdomen that is curved upward.

NB: Sbeïtla was together with Kasserine during WW II the theater of tank battles between US-British and German- Italian troops.

Hello Dietrich,
Awesome looking grasshopper, I have never seen one quite like it. Unusual segmented body and no wings visible. Wonderful detail and lovely color combinations. Well done!!
