fork-tailed bush katydid? - Scudderia fasciata - male

fork-tailed bush katydid? - Scudderia fasciata - Male
Merrimack, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA
July 7, 2011
I raised four katydids, two male and two female, during july that I found on my mom's basil when they were very small. I raised them on basil and they loved it. They ate their way through over 6 leaves a day. One male died for unknown reasons but the others grew up and were released. I photographed this male after each molt. I think it is probably a fork-tailed bush katydid because that is the only species confirmed in my backyard.
