Bug Of The Month


Creosote Bush Katydid - Insara covilleae

Identification: Pronotum is "saddle-shaped". Green or dark green with prominent white markings on the fore wings.

Range: Southern Nevada, deserts of southern California, across southern Arizona to the southwestern corner of New Mexico.

Food: Feeds on Creosote, Larrea tridentata.

IMO, this is one of the most beautiful Katydids in the USA that I've seen or heard of. So I had to make it Bug Of The Month! :)
