Interesting. This looks similar to the newly described Pink Katydid species from Borneo, Malaysia. The new species was under the genus Eulophophyllum.

The males of the 2 new species are green in colour and only the females are pink.

The similarity is the appendages or lobes on the hind legs.

Check out the publication paper of the new species from Malaysia here :
