Celes variables - Black grasshopper belongs the Acrididae family. It has a wide distribution in Europe but is quite rare. In Europe, this species is assessed as Near Threatened since its area of occupancy (AOO) is likely to be smaller than 3,000 kmĀ², the population is severely fragmented, and there is a continuing decline in the extent of occurrence.
