Slender-bodied Walkingstick - Manomera tenuescens - female

Slender-bodied Walkingstick - Manomera tenuescens - Female
Chickasawhatchee, Dougherty County, Georgia, USA
August 14, 2011
Seen when "grass" moved while searching an area in a mixed forest in southwest Georgia for insects on 14 August. We returned this insect to her original perch after photographing her on the white background (styrofoam plate). Best guess is Genus Diapheromera, but I was not confident with any identification after reviewing all of Order Phasmida here on BG. BTW, the Walkingstick was already missing the leg and had the bent antennae when Melissa and I found it. We were very gentle with her, and she was cooperative. Additional images on my Flickr page(s): Photo 1/3, Photo 2/3, Photo 3/3

Excellent
David. Mystery solved. This one bothered me after I looked at every image in the entire Order, and still could not match it up. Thanks and Happy New Year.

Nymph?
Probably a nymph, which will always confuse one when trying to make an ID.

 
Appreciate that
Thanks Eric. I was thinking that might be a possibility. BTW, I don't leave home without the Guide you wrote with Kenn.
