Katydid - Orchelimum minor - Male
Pasadena, Anne Arundel County, Maryland, USA
November 4, 2006
Size: ~12.5mm head to wingtips
I can't decide which of the genera this one belongs in, I keep second guessing myself. Any thoughts appreciated! He was on the side of house (same spot) for three days before I photographed and released.

Man, it's a Conocephalinae, Genus Orchelimum. I'm not sure about the species, but I think that is Orchelimum vulgare because it have long wings, caracteristic cercus, abdominal disposal and the color and of the hind legs. Ah! Great photo!

 
Orchelimum
Thank you for the info. It probably is vulgare but maybe minor. I have a few dorsal shots of the cerci and stridulatory area (they didn't turn out that great) and I believe they resemble minor more than vulgare. I suppose I will just leave at the genus level for now.
