Common Garden Katydid (Caedicia simplex)

Just one short video this week. This is the Common Garden Katydid, Caedicia simplex.  As you can see it is well disguised as a leaf.  It feeds on the leaves and flowers of various plants. In this video it is feeding on Eucalyptus viminalis. This one was around 45mm in length although they can get up to 60mm.
