Angle-wing Katydid (Tettigoniids)

Tettigoniids are different from grasshoppers, the length of their filamentous antennae, may exceed their own body length, while grasshoppers' antennae are shorter.

The family Tettigoniidae, also known as katydids or bush crickets, contains more than 6,400 species. They are also known as long-horned grasshoppers, although they are more closely related to crickets than to grasshoppers.
