Far and away, the most common katydid in the Bay Area is the Fork-Tailed Katydid, Scudderia furcata. I get them in my yard all the time. Was this in your garden? The females lay their eggs in the leaves of citrus trees. We have a Valencia Orange tree in the yard, and they love to eat my Dahlias and Zinnias too.
