Common field grasshopper - Chorthippus brunneus
Common field grasshopper - Chorthippus brunneus


Common field grasshopper
The common field grasshopper (Chorthippus brunneus) is a species in the order grasshoppers, crickets and locusts (Orthoptera), the suborder grasshoppers (Caelifera), the superfamily Acridoidea, the family Acrididae, the subfamily Gomphocerinae, and the genus Chorthippus. The common field grasshopper is widespread in Europe and Asia. This species is common in Germany.
Adult female Chorthippus brunneus reach body lengths of 20 - 25 mm while the males are much smaller. The upper surface of their bodies is brownish. The patches of colour on the body differ in males and females. The abdomen has black and light stripes on the sides. The underside is much lighter than the upper surface. There are reddish spots on the upper surface of the last abdominal segments. The common field grasshopper can only be distinguished from similar species by the sounds it creates.
Common field grasshoppers prefer to live in dry, warm habitats. They are found on sandy ground, vacancies on the ground, and on roadsides, clearcuts or fallow land. Occasionally one even finds them in damp places. The females lay their eggs in the ground.
