Greetings from Panama!
Dr Alan Jaslow took this picture in the 70s in our Farm in Panama and I need to put a tag with the name on but I am not certain about the name. I got mimet iga ingisa but the ink is fading and is not readible.
Thanks for you help!!!!

Hi Arliss,
All we can say for sure is that it is a Katydid. The archival photo that you are trying to classify is quite beautiful. We have recently gotten some help with Katydid identification from Piotr Naskrecki and we will contact him to see if he is able to assist.

Hi Daniel,
I looked at the picture and the accompanying text. The faded label Aliss
mentions spelled “Mimetica incisa.” I believe, however, that the picture
shows a different species, Mimetica crenulata.
