Northern Bush Katydid

Scudderia septentrionalis


Usually green and range in size by species from 1 to 5 inches. The antennae are two to three times the length of the body.


Found on branches of trees or bushes in North America and other parts of the world.


Katydids get their name from how their song sounds, "Katy did, Katy didn't" They rub their wings together to produce the song.

Neither of these is one of the "'hoppers" referenced in the mission where you have placed this. 'Hoppers in that case refers to planthoppers, leafhoppers, treehoppers, and related "true bugs."
