Katydid

Hi Gerard,
This is some species of Katydid, but we need to try to research exactly what species. That swordlike ovipositor, despite looking like a stinger, is actually used by the female to lay eggs. Your specimen is obviously a female Katydid. We have never seen a Katydid that looked like this and we are very curious to find out more information about it.

yea i have never did also thats whi i sent you the pic it even has a white patch near the front. to tell u the truth the swordlike ovipositor on the bug as i was approaching it she kind of puts her head own and sticks that tail up in the air like some sort of defense.
