Mating Walking Sticks – Insex
Found these two spending a few hours on the outside wall of my house in the Ozarks of Arkansas. I take it these are not the “muskmares” that spray noxious fumes.
You are correct. These are not Muskmares. We believe them to be Northern Walkingsticks, Diapheromera femorata, which range as far south as Northern Florida. There is more information on BugGuide.
