Your letter to the bugman:  This guy has been crawling on my ceiling the past few days. He hasn’t done any harm, and appears to only move during the night because each day I’ve looked at him before going to bed, and he’s in a new spot the next morning. He doesn’t change position too much after that, if at all. As much as his weirdness has added to my day (because how can he not when he’s hanging above your head?), I would like to know what he is so that when I manage to finally get him down, I can put him in a good spot outside to continue on with his life. Unless him missing his 6th leg is a problem. If it isn’t, hopefully he’ll stay away from houses in the future.

Female Katydid

Dear Sara,
Your guy is actually a female Katydid.  Her ovipositor, an organ used to lay eggs, is visible in one of your images.

Location: Dublin, Georgia
