Spiny Rainforest Katydid

Phricta spinosa


All katydids are adept at camouflage but none more than this mossy mimic. The nymph rests on mossy tree trunks pointing downwards and at first looked like a spider. Adult are winged. They are common but restricted to the north eastern Australian rainforests.
