Gum-leaf Katydid

Torbia viridissima


Resembles a bright green gum leaf, with wings having the colour and vein pattern of a leaf. Some adults may have brown markings on their legs.


They are well camouflaged in plants with similar leaf shape and colour. Gum-leaf Katydids live amongst and feed on gum leaves.


Photographed at Tolga Country Lodge on the Atherton Tableland. I took a photo of this katydid on the kitchen ceiling, on my birthday. The first and last time I saw this insect.
