Your letter to the bugman: I saw a leaf bug on my porch yesterday, and I forgot to take a picture, so I’ve been scouring the Internet for something similar. This picture I purchased from Shutterstock (photo by hagit berkovich) is the only one I could find of a katydid with the same kind of face/eyes. I can’t find any information on it either, so I’m wondering if it’s even a katydid at all!
How you want your letter signed: ellie n.
We will not be able to identify your particular Katydid from the attached image which is surely not a North American species. The True Katydid pictured on BugGuide looks similar, but https://bugguide.net/node/view/7075/dataBugGuide does not report it from Colorado.
