    Grass Hoppers and other similar insects with straight wings and jump come in the order Orthoptera. Though I don't know what exactly is the insect in that order which you are talking about, I can help you in solving the question with the help of Google.
    1. Go and search insects in the order Orthoptera.

    2. Once you get the list of insects in that order, go to Google images and search one by one.

    3. Probably you may get atleast few of them through this method.
    4. This order of insects will have wings. If few of your insects don't have this feature. Search for the family name or order name by mentioning the features of the insects you have.

    5. For example if your insect is brown coloured with antennae in front, search mentioning the same in Google.

    6. Finally, if you are not able to find the names of insects anymore. Take photograph of the insects and come back to ask expert forum again. Along with the question add the photographs as attachment. Probably members with Biology background can answer once they see it.

    7. Also post the same in several forums related with science, particularly Biology

    hello friend,

    Well if you are collectinf insects for your project then you would definitely have knowledge about zoology. If you know the english common names of the insects you are collecting just search it in search engines.

    For example- Grasshopper scientific name or grasshopper binomial name.

    You would definitely get your result. And also remember that all insects belong to the phylum arthropoda.
