Cicada or Katydid?
This bug was found on our family’s July 4th camping trip at Belton Lake southwest of Waco, Texas. Is it a Secada or Katydid and are they the same thing?
Thanks,
Melinda

Dear Melinda,
Cicadas and Katydids are different insects. Katydids look llike green grasshoppers, and Cicadas look like giant flies. Your Cicada is a pretty green color. I don’t know the exact species name. Eric Eaton wrote us that
Tibicen superbus is the only species with an all-green front half.
