Katydid Green Grasshopper


Tettigoniidae are commonly called katydids or bush-crickets. This one was spotted on a wall near Zion National Park, UT.


Katydids are most abundant in the tropics—the Amazon rainforest is home to about 2,000 species—but katydids are also found in cooler and drier regions throughout the world; the United States is home to over 100 species. They live on trees, bushes, or grasses, often matching the appearance of their surroundings.
