Insects/Bugs/Bees/Butterflies - Bush Katydid
Class:Insecta Order:Orthoptera Family:Tettigoniidae Genus:Scudderia


Bush Cricket, Scudderia, several species. He may look like a grasshopper, but this is actually the Bush Cricket. The way you can tell the Katydids from the grasshoppers is the length of the antennae. Grasshoppers have short antennae and these crickets' antennae are as long as their bodies. These crickets are capable of stridulation, or making noise with their wings. I'm always amazed by large these guys are and how difficult they are to spot in a sea of flower heads.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
