Can You Identify This Species of Grasshopper?

Photo courtesy:

Wildlife Extra News has a bit of a dilemma. They have the above photo of this magnificent grasshopper - the trouble is that no one can identify it. A new species? Maybe.

This grasshopper was photographed from a unspoiled hill forest (semi-evergreen) in Bangladesh in August 2010. The majestic insect was spotted by the crew of a TV series about the biodiversity of Bangladesh, "Prokriti O Jibon", "Life and the Living".

If anyone knows this species, please let Wildlife Extra know by email ( If anyone out there knows what it is, how about leaving a comment for me, too. Thanks in advance.
