Sandstone Acacia Grasshopper (Coryphistes RD sp. 1)

(1 customer review)


Out of stock


This species of Acacia (wattle)-feeding grasshopper is found in SA’s fa northern deserts, where it feeds on Mulga (Acacia aneura) but should take other species of Acacia and probably even Eucalyptus, making it a good companion for stick insects. The grasshoppers are well camouflaged on the red sand during the day and climb the bushes and trees at night to feed. The colour and texture of this grasshopper reminded us of sandstone.
