Your letter to the bugman: I believe this is a female Meadow Katydid but can’t tell which type. Thoughts??
How you want your letter signed: Myra Reneau
Because of the blue eyes, we believe your Meadow Katydid is a Handsome Meadow Katydid, Orchelimum pulchellum, which is pictured on BugGuide. According to BugGuide: “Note white face with brownish to reddish mottling on edges, brown legs, diffuse turquoise stripe on upper sides back along wings. Eyes usually blue–fairly distinctive.”
Thank you very much for the idea. Feel free to use my photo if you would like to.
