Hi Bugman,
My brother took this image in Manu National Park, Peru. I believe it is an Orophus sp. But would like an expert opinion

Katydid from Peru

Hi Sebastian,
We will contact Katydid expert Piotr Naskrecki to see if he can confirm the identification of this dried leaf mimic Katydid.  We located this other photo of a leaf mimic Katydid from Peru, but it does not appear to be the same as your individual and it is not identified.  We do not believe your individual resembles the
Orophus species on this wonderful Conservation Report web page on leaf mimicking creatures.
