Was wandering around the hotel.
Tettigoniidae, Lichen Katydid.
He is fascinating! Amazing!
Thanks Gerardo...Thanks for the info Martin...I changed the name...I thought he was fascinating!
This looks like a katydid, related to grasshoppers (both are order = Orthoptera) but nocturnal and with long antennae. The wing covers of this one are spectacular and look like snake skin.Cicadas have eyes very wide apart. They never have pleated wings and never have long antennae.
