Lichen Katydid This was one of the more spectacular Katydid I came across.<br />
Was quite amazed with the markings on its wings, that looks like lichen and is quite geometric.<br />
Katydid are from the family of Tettigoniidae<br />

Another view of this same Katydid :<br />

  1. Gorgeous one indeed! Posted 3 years ago
    1. Yes indeed, unfortunately, can't find the species ID for it.
      It seems lots of Katydids from over here are hardly identified to even genus level!

      1. That seems to be true around the world, I usually don't bother at all. Posted 3 years ago
        1. You mean you don't bother to look/verify the ID anymore? Posted 3 years ago
          1. In the case of tropical grasshoppers and katydids...indeed, no. I've tried many times, but it seems a pointless exercise. Posted 3 years ago
  2. This one looks the same but there is no specific ID.

    1. Thanks for the link, WildFlower and yes I am sure this one is a Katydid.
      Have seen other pictures of similar looking Katydid online, and none so far has specific ID, some has possible genus ID.

  3. Possibly something in or close to Olcinia sp. or Sathrophyllia sp. Posted one year ago, modified one year ago
