Brooklyn, New York, USA

Size: body was about 2cm
I didn't get a great picture of its head, but I'll include it. I did touch up the contrast a bit to try to see the eyes. Maybe a grasshopper instar? At first my husband and I were terrified that it was a morphed huge aphid.

coneheaded katydid
He's gotten bigger and now looks like a coneheaded katydid. He's been on the rhubarb, I guess it isn't poisonous to them? (First pics were on clover in with the blueberries.) There was a white papery substance on a leaf below him, so think he just molted (on Sat, Aug 3). Still looks young. Then on Sunday found another on a raspberry plant (jumped on me when I was pruning). Amazed at how well they blend in. And definitely a different one, the first one was still on the rhubarb. So far not enough damage to the plants to bother them. Put #2 in the shade when I was done.
