Atlanticus gibbosus, 11 May 2020

Atlanticus gibbosus, the Robust shield back;
Volusia county, Florida (11 May 2020).

One of my favorite ‘hoppers, this is a Robust shield back, a wickedly savvy little katydid of Family Tettigoniidae. Very distinctive and in contrast to its larger, greener katydid cousins.
