Katydid

Tettigoniidae

Description:

Tettigoniids (Katydid) 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. Many tettigoniids exhibit mimicry and camouflage, commonly with shapes and colors similar to leaves.

Habitat:

Most Katydids live in forests, thickets, or fields with lots of shrubs or trees. Katydids spend most of their time at the tops of trees where most of the leaves are . This one and several others seem to enjoy our patio.
