Early stages of narrow-winged saltbush grasshopper, Aeoloplides tenuipennis, have not been figured in the literature, hindering their separation from economically harmful or benign species of grasshoppers and hampering ecological or taxonomic investigations. During June and July 2015, five instars of A. tenuipennis were collected or photographed at two sites in Cochise County, Arizona, U.S.A. These are illustrated alongside a brief morphometric table. Notes on habitat, identification and polychromatism, and a comparison with 4th and 5th instars of the widespread snakeweed grasshopper, Hesperotettix viridis viridis, are included.

Based upon a week's field work in northwestern El Salvador, we add 14 species to the list of grasshoppers known from the country, increasing the count to 24 species. Habitat notes and photos are presented for some.

After being unrecorded for approximately 70 years, Aztecacris gloriosus (Hebard, 1935) (Orthoptera: Acrididae) is documented from several sites in the Pajarito Mountains, Santa Cruz County, Arizona, USA. An association with Broom Snakeweed (Gutierrezia sarothrae) (Asteraceae) is suggested. The known range of the species is small and limited to Santa Cruz County. Habitat and associated orthopterans are discussed, as is an attempted mating by a male Melanoplus on a female A. gloriosus. Photos of A. gloriosus and its habitat are presented.

Based upon 18 specimens collected at two sites in southeastern Arizona during 2009 and 2010, Dichroplus notatus is added to the orthopteran fauna of the United States. Habitat descriptions, lists of sympatric orthopterans and comments on its taxonomic position are presented.
