I find Northern Walking sticks often in my yard but this is the first time I have ever seen one like this. I am hoping someone can give me the proper ID for it. The nearest I can come on the guide is A. magnaria and that is not a good match. Possibly this is a juvenile. If it is a Two Striped, I think Pennsylvania would be well out of it's range from what I have read. Then again, is it a female Northern Walking Stick? (Diapheromera femorata)
