This was found dead on a window sill in Oklahoma City, OK this past week. I’ve tried googling the image to no avail. Could you help me?

Meadow Katydid

Meadow Katydid

Dear Anne,
This is a Katydid, and the sickle-like ovipositor indicates she is a female.  We believe she is a Meadow Katydid in the genus
Orchelimum, possibly the Long Spurred Meadow Katydid, Orchelimum silvaticum, which is pictured on BugGuide. or possibly the Common Meadow Katydid, Orchelimum vulgare, which is also pictured on BugGuide.

Location: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
