Thought this was brought up before but didn't find it. The new confirmation on a Diapheromera image reminded us of the question:

Do we want to follow Nearctica with it placed in Heteronemiidae here

or do we want to follow the Phasmid Study Group with it placed in Diapheromeridae here

(the species name is spelled differently too!)

Phasmid Study Group
You may be thinking of my comment here--apparently I never got around to posting it in this forum. My vote would be to follow what the Phasmid Study Group does, which would mean checking the taxonomy of our other phasmids to make sure we're not mixing taxonomies.
