We found this pink katydid (I think that’s what it is) on a hike along Skyline Drive in Virginia. It was stunning. I’ve found very little about it on the internet (except that it has been seen in Michigan). Is there anything unique about it other than it’s color?
Pink Katydids are common enough to be relatively well documented. We have about three or four previous images. Orange is an even more rare color varient.
Update: (07/03/2008) Katydid IDs from Piotr Naskrecki
I have been looking at the page with unidentified katydids (Katydids 2), and thought I could help with some ID’s. From top to bottom they are: Amblycorypha sp.
