Amblycorypha - Amblycorypha oblongifolia - female

Amblycorypha - Amblycorypha oblongifolia - Female
Howland Island, Northern Montezuma Wildlife Management Area, Cayuga County, New York, USA
July 21, 2020
Saw dozens of these large katydids out in wetlands & wet meadows. I assume they are the adults of these:

Seen in various shades of green.

Moved tentatively
These Amblycorypha are tough for me to identify, even in hand, but this female is definitely not rotundifolia - and I heard quite a few oblongifolia around the Montezuma area at night in late July, although I was unable to capture any (just heard from car)

Moved from Long-horned Orthoptera.

 
katydids
There are so many singing insects at Montezuma I was overwhelmed attempting to document any of them. I've never seen a bigger sheer abundance of katydids - mostly meadow katydids of various species - in my life. Hundreds jump out of the way when I walk through the grasses! I of course get more of an insider look because I do fieldwork there and can enter the wetlands but I struggle because I never have the time nor my good camera to seek these fella out like I want to.
