This is a Katydid I found in Agumbe, Western Ghats, Karnataka. I need help identifying the species due to my unfamiliarity with insects :)

There are three main families: Acrididae (short-horned grasshoppers), Tettigoniidae (long-horned grasshoppers and katydids), and Tetrigidae (pygmy grasshoppers)....

I think this is of the second family, Tettigoniidae ... about 6000 species unfortunately...
