Dried Leaf Mimic Katydid from Nicaragua

Subject: Help please

We saw this bug in a bromeliad in cloud forest in Nicaragua. It was described to us at the time as a leaf bug, but I suspect that this is generic term meaning “I don’t have a clue”! Can you help identify it please?

Dear Emcee,
This looks nearly identitical to a Dried Leaf Mimic Katydid in the genus
Mimetica from Belize that we recently posted.  Your individual seems to have lost one of its jumping legs.
