Tinzeda sp. (poss. T. sororoides)
A very attractive katydid adorned with white pin-striping along her wings. This female appears gravid and was not prepared to (or able to) fly away.
Found on young snow gum (Eucalyptus pauciflora) on Mt Macedon
Good find Martin... a pretty reminder that the Alpine areas hold much to be spotted.
Thanks Cindy, its the cutest katydid that I've seen.
Love the edging on this one!
This is a female Tinzeda sp, possibly Tinzeda sororoides.http://davesgarden.com/guides/bf/showima...http://orthoptera.speciesfile.org/common... Thanks to David Rentz for the ID.
I have had a suggestion that it is a predatory katydid (carnivorous) but can still find no leads.
