Microcentrum rhombifolium, the Greater anglewing;
Volusia county, Florida (29 April 2020).

The Greater anglewing is one of our impressive katydid species in Volusia county, Florida. Ranging across the most of the United States, this is an impressively resilient and adaptable species. Really, if there’s ample foliage, then there’s a chance you’ll find a Greater anglewing. Its wings mimic leaves. This is probably one reason you don’t tend to find them in the open expanses of the American midwest or our various desert regions. The Greater anglewings needs surrounding leaves to stealth its way through the day and night.
