Hi Daniel.
I’ve seen this Katydid on Flickr from a few different photographers but no one has a name for it. I was able to photograph it for the first time this week and I’d love to be able to put a full name on it. Maybe Piotr would have some idea? It seems pretty distinctive so it might be ‘easy’ for him to ID.
Hope you’re well,

Dear David,
This Katydid is an immature nymph, and many times nymphs greatly differ from adults in coloration and markings.  We found a matching individual on DeviantArt, but as you indicated, it is not identified.  It is also unidentified on Singapore Nature.  As you requested, we will contact Piotr Naskrecki to see if he can identify this colorful little guy.
