    well, I seached my insect books and the internet and can't find an exact duplicate... however it may be a variation of the "pictured grasshopper" (dactylotum bicolor)... also called "rainbow grasshopper", "painted grasshopper" and "barber-pole grasshopper" https://www.google.com/search?q=pictured+grasshopper&hl=en&newwindow=1&safe=off&rlz=1T4GGHP_enUS460US460&prmd=imvns&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=uylOUNK-LsXDygHQzIHYDg&ved=0CC0QsAQ&biw=1210&bih=726 http://bugguide.net/node/view/31454 http://itp.lucidcentral.org/id/grasshopper/adult/media/Html/Factsheets/..%5CPdfs%5CD_bicolor_factsheet.pdf
