This bug is like an Ant in the basic view,
But its back legs look like a grasshopper but it does’nt jump like grasshoppers,
Has a lengthy Antenna and the work same like a Cockroach’s antenna,
Slow moving and i saw only one, not a group, and i fount it under a Neem Tree,
The bug looks somewhat shy, unlike other ants it has viewing capability
I found this at a small village in south Tamilnadu, South India
Just Shared this to spread an information and knowledge,
These photos were taken solely by me only.
Thank you

Katydid Nymph

Dear Arun,
We believe this is a Katydid Nymph, and it is an excellent ant mimic.  We will contact Katydid expert Piotr Naskrecki to get his opinion.  Alamy has an image of an Ant Mimic Katydid from Australia.
