Dear bug man,
I found this bug on my porch a few days ago. I was wondering if you would be able to identify what it is? It is a tan color and didn’t really move much even when I took the picture.
The Cattail Toothpick Grasshopper, Leptysma marginicollis, is a very distinctive species that “Inhabits wet areas, and is usually found on emergent vegetation such as cattails and sedges” according to Bugguide, which leads us to believe you live not far from a marsh or swamp.
