Striped Walkingstick

Dear Mrs. Fliehmann,
This is a female Striped Walkingstick in the genus Anisomorpha.  There are two species in North America, and they look quite similar, and both are reported from Mississippi.  According to BugGuide:  “Members of this genus can deliver a chemical spray to the eyes that can cause corneal damage.”  These Walkingsticks are sometimes called Muskmares.
