I only got one shot of this guy, and not a great view of his cerci. I'm leaning toward Common Meadow Katydid (Orchelimum vulgare), Long-spurred Meadow Katydid (Orchelimum silvaticum), or Gladiator Meadow Katydid (Orchelimum gladiator), but I may be in the wrong genus altogether. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

definitely male Orchelimum
I would lean for O. vulgare, but I don't know how to rule out silvaticum. Probably not gladiator.
