Orange Katydid
I came across your website when i was looking for info on what seemed to be a pretty unusual insect. The picture was taken in SW Virginia. How rare do you think this is?

Hi Gary,
According to our Audubon Insect Guide: the Oblong Winged Katydid, Amblycorypha oblongifolia, is “Leaf-green or rarely pastel pink or tan.” I guess in some peoples’ opinion, tan might be viewed as orange. The color morph is still rare. We have received pink specimen photos, but never this color.
