Our publications list both g. brunneus and g. mollis. But it's very difficult to distinguish between them. They can be identified from the shape of the outer wing and the song.

This is a Glypotobothrus sp.

Recently the genus Chorthippus have been split into Glypotobothrus and Chorthippus. The difference is that the Glypotobothrus species have a widened medial area on the tegminae while the Chorthippus do not.[/img]
