Katydid – What Species
Hi Bug Guy,
I Love this site – whatsthatbug.com . I have identified so many insects here! Thanks. Here is a very recent photo of a Katydid that is very abundant in Dragoon, AZ right now. Can you tell me which species of Katydid this is? Thanks so much!

Hi Carol,
This is a Common Short-winged Katydid, a Dichopetala species. According to BugGuide, these medium sized, robust Katydids are found in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.
