Pseudoproscopia latirostris (Horse-head grasshopper).

Size: Male 8-9cm; Female 14-15cm.

P. latirostris get their common name due to their very unusually shaped heads, and as they are grasshoppers they have enormously long back legs and can hop surprisingly well considering how thin these legs are.
