long-horned grasshopper

Description:

An unidentified long-horned grasshopper, also known as a katydid or bush cricket. The family Tettigoniidae "contains more than 6,400 species, most of which live in the tropics. Tettigoniids may be distinguished from grasshoppers by the length of their filamentous antennae, which may exceed their own body length, while grasshoppers' antennae are always relatively short and thickened." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tettigoniid...

Habitat:

Spotted along a survey transect in mixed lowland equatorial rainforest (freshwater swamp forest/sago swamp).
