Diagnostic Notes
Chondracris rosea can be distinguished from all other grasshopper species by:

- Prosternal tubercles (between front legs) conical, bent and slightly inflated. Similar to Valanga and Austracris in this respect but none of these genera have rosy hind wings.

- Pronotum surface with many raised ridges. Medium portion raised and the ridge is cut by 3 sulci.

- Hind tibiae pink

- Hind wing pink

- Male cercus thinly triangular and apically feebly curved inwards.
