Immature Male Common True Katydid

Dear Brad,
We apologize for our delay.  Your identification request was on the back burner so long it fell off the stove, but we went back through our unanswered mail and relocated it.  This is an immature male Katydid, and when we searched for images of immature Katydids from Indiana, we found our own posting from Ohio of a female immature Common True Katydid,
Pterophylla camellifolia.  This BugGuide image of an immature male Common True Katydid looks exactly like your individual.

Location: Fort Wayne, Indiana
