An excellent mimic of a female tarantula hawk, which is a wasp with an excruciating sting. Thanks to Carroll for identifying it for me. It turns out to be quite common in Panama but rare in the sense of being a katydid mimicking a wasp. See https://www.abchomeandcommercial.com/blo... for a great description of the wasp - not the katydid.
