female katydid nymph

Description:

Also known as a long-horned grasshopper or a bush cricket, members of the Family Tettigonidae which contains more than 6,400 species. They are more closely related to crickets than to (short-horned) grasshoppers. They can be distinguished from grasshoppers by the length of their antennae which may exceed their own body length, while grasshoppers' antennae are always relatively short and thickened.

Habitat:

Spotted on yellow walking iris (Neomarica longifolia) in a large semi-urban yard/garden adjacent to a disturbed remnant patch of forest.

Notes:

Consulted http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tettigoniid...

Very nice little Katydid. This looks like a species of Meadow Katydid, Tribe Conocephalini. That's as far as I can help you at this point. Yours looks like a nymph. I really like those pink eyes!
