Chorthippus paralellus ... (I think that it is now in a different genus)

Thanks Paul. Do you base your id on the form of the side keels and the short wings?
If C. paralellus, then I guess the wing size would probably indicate a female?
I haven't been able to find any references to a genus change though. Or do you mean that it is now called Pseudochorthippus?

Edit: yes I see now that a new genus Pseudochorthippus has been created and that C. paralellus has been renamed to P. paralellus.
