Spiny Lobster Katydid

Hi janosch,
We are keeping Piotr Naskrecki, and expert in Orthopterans, quite busy today with unknown Katydid requests.  We hope he responds soon.

After posting and sending an email to Piotr, we checked our own archives and located the Spiny Lobster Katydid, Panoploscelis  specularis, which Piotr identified for us this past December.

Hi Daniel,
The one from Ecuador is indeed Panoploscelis specularis.
Piotr
