Bush Katydid - Scudderia septentrionalis - female

Bush Katydid - Scudderia septentrionalis - Female
Guelph, Wellington, Ontario, Canada
I used the Singing Insects of North America site to key the specimen in the earlier photo down to Scudderia septentrionalis, using this photo of the same individual's ovipositor and this drawing of comparative ovipositor shapes to key down to species. The S. septentrionalis ovipositor is more slender and curved compared to the others. However, since katydid females are still quite difficult to identify, I would like to request confirmation on this ID.

I actually decided on Northern Bush Katydid without reading that you had also ended up with this result. Very nice images.
