New grasshopper species found + grasshopper news stories | The Clinton News

New grasshopper species found | | The Clinton News:

 "a July 2009 expedition to catalog the insect life in the unique glades of the Cedars of Lebanon State Park in Tennessee.

'Literally, the first specimen I collected was a new species,' Hill said. 'When I saw it, I knew that it was something good. I've seen a lot of grasshoppers, and it didn't look like any I'd seen before.'

He gave the grasshopper the scientific name Melanoplus ingrami, honoring Wayne 'Buddy' Ingram, an interpretive officer and naturalist at the Cedars of Lebanon State Park."
