I found this interesting looking insect the other day… Maybe a type of katydid?

This is most certainly an immature Katydid, and you have captured it in the process of molting. We believe this may be a Mexican Bush Katydid nymph based on this BugGuide image, but we would not entirely rule out that it is a Fork Tailed Bush Katydid nymph based on this BugGuide image. The absence of an ovipositor indicates this is a male Bush Katydid nymph.
