Dear bugman,
I’m interested to know specifically what kind of bug this is that I found residing in my new apartment. If you know any additional information like what kind of plants he likes or hides out in, that would be cool too.

Dear Curious,
This is actually a Quite Calling Katydid known as the Drumming Katydid,
Meconema thalassinum, and you can tell she is a female because of her ovipositor.  See BugGuide for additional information.
