·         The Large Marsh Grasshopper Stethophyma grossum is one of the largest and most colourful European grasshoppers and the purple form of the female is a particularly beautiful insect. Although a rarity in the UK and confined only to small areas this species was reasonably easy to locate in appropriate damp habitats in the South of France where this series of photographs was taken.
