Hi Bugman,
here is a picture of a katydid found in Malaysia, last April 2013. It secrets an irritating fluid that you can see on the picture. Unable to find a match on internet, can you help me ?

Hi Bernard,
We did locate a matching image on Flickr, but it was not identified either.  We contacted Piotr Naskrecki from Harvard to see if he is able to assist with a species or genus identification.  Your comment about the irritating fluid is interesting.
