Xanthippus aquilonius Otte

Northwind Band-winged Grasshopper (Xanthippus aquilonius)

This species was described in 1984 based on specimens from Kettle- and Okanagan Valleys in British Columbia, Canada.

The species appears to be lost or even extinct, on the other hand it might not be valid after all but might turn out to be identical with the Red-shanked Grasshopper (Xanthippus corallipes (Haldeman)) (see photo).
