The dark lines on the pronotum are misleading,
as they can sometimes be present on A. oblongifolia as well. The proportions of the "stridulatory field" are like those of A. oblongifolia though. Some authors still treat them as subspecies of one species, but they seem to always be one or the other to me. The females are really tough to separate, but the males aren't so bad.

Moved from Round-headed Katydids.
