Katydids 2: The leaf mimics

Common True Katydid
Rattler Round-winged Katydid
Oblong-winged Katydid

Greater Angle-wing Katydid
Scudderia Bush Katydids

This section of the guide includes the Common True Katydid,

which is who most people think of as the katydid

The Rattler Round-winged Katydid, and the Oblong-winged Katydid are

in the genus Amblychorypha and the Greater Angle-wing is in the genus Microcentrum. They're also referred to as False Katydids (which probably pleases the Common True Katydid).

Rattler Round-winged Katydid

The katydids in the genus Scudderia are the bush katydids: the Broad-winged Bush Katydid, Curve-tailed Bush Katydid, Texas Bush Katydid, Fork-tailed Bush Katydid, and the Northern Bush Katydid. They, too, are "false katydids" and are also splendid leaf mimics.
