Short-winged Meadow Katydid - Conocephalus brevipennis - male

Short-winged Meadow Katydid - Conocephalus brevipennis - Male
Parkwood, Durham County, North Carolina, USA
September 12, 2005
Size: 16 mm
Detail of cerci. See illustrations of cerci in this genus at SINA, in particular compare:

C. fasciatus/C. brevipennis/C. stictomerus


Those seem to be the possible species in this genus for this part of North Carolina that have cerci roughly matching the photo. I think C. brevipennis is the best match, and the form and coloration look correct as well.
