Adult female Chorthippus brunneus reach body lengths of 20 - 25 mm while the males are much smaller. The upper surface of their bodies is brownish. The patches of colour on the body differ in males and females. The abdomen has black and light stripes on the sides. The underside is much lighter than the upper surface. There are reddish spots on the upper surface of the last abdominal segments. The common field grasshopper can only be distinguished from similar species by the sounds it creates.
