shield back?
These long-horned grasshoppers or katydids were near a pond opening in an Oregon fir forest — north coast range area. Can you ID from the photos? They were plentiful. Photos taken July 15, 2006. Thanks,

Hi Lona,
This is a Keeled Shield-Back Katydid, Neduba carinata. They are found in coastal areas from California to British Columbia.

    There is no doubt that the Neduba carinata is the insect which lives in my gas barbecue in Bluffton, SC, not far from Hilton Head Island. I’ve had plenty of time to observe the bug, so I’m sure of the I.D.
