Amblycorypha genus


Common Names: Round-headed Katydids
Category: Insects
Sub-category: Katydids


This is a catch-all for unidentified katydids in the Amblycorypha genus, which can be difficult to separate by photograph. Size is approximately 21 to 45 mm. They have long legs (hind femora extent almost to tips of tegmina) like Scudderia, but more rounded wings, and overall shape of Microcentrum, though rather more rounded (esp. tegmina). Top of the head rounded, strongly deflexed. Green, but some species, esp. A. floridana, have a pink phase (some have a yellow phase as well). Wide space between base of antennae apparently differentiates from Microcentrum, Scudderia. Typically found in damp fields, forest edges, flowers, from June to October.

Edible Notes: No available information on edibility.
