Katydid nymph, Kikipounamu

Caedicia simplex


Common in gardens in New Zealand, also found in Australia. Usually difficult to find due to their excellent camouflage. Feed on foliage Adult size 40mm.


Common in gardens. Can't find much information on them otherwise but would assume they could also be found in native forest.


This nymph was in our garden and I was very happy to find it. I love their intense green colour and leaf like pattern on their bodies.
