katydid nymph - Microcentrum retinerve

May 19, 2004
A katydid nymph on a white peony. It could be a Microcentrum sp., perhaps M. retinerve but not sure. Any help in identifying is appreciated.

Microcentrum retinerve; so, I think we can finally say that this is indeed a Microcentrum nymph, but I'm still not comfortable saying which one (but M. retinerve is certainly likely.

Moved from False Katydids.

Legs too long.
Legs too long for a Microcentrum. One of the "false katydids" to be sure, though.
