Australian Katydid Nymph/ Share the love
Hi "What’s That Bug",
I found your fascinating site when looking for information about katydids, and thought that in the interest of science and bug-lovers everywhere you might appreciate some contributions from Down Under. Attached is a very new, shiny katydid nymph. Also for your "bug lurve" section, please find attached a gratuitous aphid orgy.
Warm regards
Jennifer

Hi Jennifer,
Thanks for your contributions. We aren’t entirely sure the aphids are mating. Many Aphids have generations that reproduce parthenogenetically. The females do not require a mate and give birth to live females. In this way they can reproduce very rapidly.
