Brief Summary

provided by Ecomare
The mottled grasshopper is an elegant, small grasshopper found in low and open vegetation. It is spotted brown, green or black, giving it a mottled look. There are visible knobs at the ends of the antennae, explaining its Dutch name 'knob sprit'. In the dunes, mottled grasshoppers are the most common species found. However, on the island Terschelling, it lives more often in open heath fields. The species is found early in the summer. It is even found on the uninhabited island Griend. The song of the mottled grasshopper sounds like a clock being wound.
