Common True Katydid

Pterophylla camellifolia


The Common True Katydid or Northern True Katydid (Pterophylla camellifolia) is found in the eastern United States from Massachusetts south to northern Florida and west to the start of the Great Plains, but is absent from southern Florida and most of the northern tier of states. These katydids are often heard, but rarely seen, since they generally stay in the crowns of deciduous and coniferous trees. The broad tegmina bulge noticeably on the sides, completely enclosing the abdomen and the inner wings. From Encyclopedia of Life
