Hi Mr Bug Man,
Please identify for us this bug. We found many of them laying on the sidewalk one day during the monsoon season.
How you want your letter signed:  Thanks, Susan

Katydid

Dear Susan,
Your request has been on our back burner since we received it.  Alas, we have tried unsuccessfully several times to identify this Orthopteran, but it does look familiar to us.  It is quite distinctive looking with its gaudy camouflage markings.  Perhaps one of our readers will have better luck than we have had.

Update:  September 5, 2017
Thanks to Cesar Crash of Insetologia who identified this Katydid as
Parasanaa donovani, a species we had in our archives.

  1. Looks to me like it has katydid antennae.
