Long-spurred Meadow Katydid - Orchelimum silvaticum - male

Long-spurred Meadow Katydid - Orchelimum silvaticum - Male
Kokomo, Howard County, Indiana, USA
August 17, 2013
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!

Moved
Moved from Greater Meadow Katydids.
I finally noticed the spines on his hind femur, making him O. sylvaticum

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

 
Thanks!
:)
