Pycnopalpa sp., most likely P. bicordata
Another extraordinary katydid nymph. This girl (it has an ovipositor, so it is a "she") is so incredibly shaped that I won't even try to describe it. Its most distinctive feature is that it keeps the rear femurs extended forward, parallel to the surface it is in, instead of keeping them pointed upwards, as usual in other katydids.
Family Tettigoniidae, Subfamily Phaneropterinae,
