Found this bug in my jardin.
Ecuador, Baños de Agua Santa
This is definitely a Katydid, but we cannot say for certain that it is a Lobster Katydid in the genus Panoploscelis. We will try to contact Katydid expert Piotr Naskrecki to see if he can confirm its identity. Your individual is a female as evidenced by her swordlike ovipositor. Your individual does look very much like the Lobster Katydid pictured on VisualPhotos.
Piotr Naskrecki provides identification
No, this is not Panoploscelis. It is a nymph of a species from the tribe Cocconotini (Pseudophyllinae), but hard to say which genus.
