katydid - Microcentrum katydid - Microcentrum

Moved from False Katydids.

Any chance it can be raised?
even for just a while...that would be the best way to see what it is.

I'll see if there are any still on the plant.

This is a Katydid nymph
There have been several similar ones posted, but I haven't been able to work out which species they are yet. Hopefully we'll get them worked out before too much longer. Odds are that they are all indeed nymphs of Microcentrum (eggs with this one certainly favor that conclusion), but some of them might be in another genus such as Amblycorypha. I need to verify if Microcentrum is the only genus in your area that lays eggs in this manor, but suspect it may be.

Moved from ID Request.
