Spotted Bird Grasshopper Schistocerca lineata Scudder, 1899  

Status:

Notes from David Ferguson/BugGuide.net: "S. alutacea, lineata, and rubiginosa are very closely related, and some authors treat them as subspecies, while most treat them as distinct species. The real biological situation is probably more complex than that. "Reliable" determinations are best made by examination of male specimens (but can usually be made from photos if the male terminalia are showing). Females can usually be identified based on appearance and where found, but where more than one species occur together, they can sometimes be difficult, and I suspect that some of them actually hybridize too."

There are 3 records in the project database.
