I tried figuring this out myself on the guide, but I just can't tell the green Katydids apart.

Amblycorypha oblongifolia
This appears to be an Oblong-winged Katydid (Amblycorypha oblongifolia). This is an extremely difficult genus to identify to species throughout much of its range, however when the individual is from as far north as this one things are alot simpler as there are only two or three species in Amblycorypha or the similar looking Microcentrum present.
