Some Creosote Bush Katydid photos for you!
August 8, 2009
Hello!
The other night I heard an unusual, quiet buzzing noise coming from a creosote bush outside of my house. I hunted for the source of the noise with a flashlight and found this little guy! (took forever to spot him, though)
He was still on the bush in the morning, so I took some pictures (again, it took a while to find him; I thought he was gone, and just as I was about to stop looking, he happened to move and I spotted him!). I just thought I’d share a picture or two with you. I hope you enjoy them!
I zoomed in on one of his back legs to show how he’s holding on to the bush. I thought it was interesting to see up close. =)
With the help of your site, I was able to identify this little guy as a Creosote Bush Katydid (I hope I’m right!).
Thank you for this incredible website!

Hi Cassandra,
Thanks for sending us your photographs of a male Creosote Bush Katydid, Insara covilleae.  BugGuide only has submissions from Arizona.  Since this species feeds on creosote bush, the Creosote Bush Katydid ranges where the food source grows.
