This photo was taken, during the night, in September, in cloud forest of Central Costa Rica, at a height of 4500′. I think the katydid is shedding its skin. Please can you identify it?

Dear calculus,
We haven’t the necessary skills to identify your Katydid based on your lovely image of a molting individual.  Perhaps one of our readers will have better luck.

Thanks for trying.  Could you even suggest a family name?

All Katydids are in the family Tettigoniidae.
