Conehead Katydid

Dear Panicked,
You had an encounter with one of the Conehead Katydids, and we believe this is one of members of the genus
Belocephalus, based on photos posted to Bugguide.  They are “Usually associated with small palms, including saw and cabbage palmettos” and “Has been observed eating palm fronds” according to Bugguide.
