Blackish Meadow Katydid

Posted by Darren on April 23, 2010

This elusive insect is the Blackish Meadow Katydid (Conocephalus semivittatus), generally a nocturnal insect that spends the day hidden in dark spaces.  I came across this Katydid by chance when I disturbed its hiding spot at the base of a large reed-like leaf.  A very shy insect, they try to make themselves invisible by hiding behind leaves in relation to the intruders position.
