Green Katydid

Description:

A green-colored katydid on a flowering plant hairy stem. I have only managed to track it's identification to Ensifera of the Orthoptera order. I believe it is still a larva because it's wings is still short. Just one of it's antenna is more than twice the length of it's body.

Habitat:

I have forgotten the name of the plant it lives on but I know that this plant disperse it's seeds by itself without any help from any elements, Sabah Tea Garden, Ranau, Sabah, Malaysia.

Notes:

This guy was not easy to spot from a distance but luckily it's moving long antennas revealed it's presence. >>>Map accuracy : 30 m diameter.
