Looks like a katydid to me. We just always called them leaf bugs because they look like a leaf.
I agree with Sheila. When you, or someone, took this photo, is it the original?
A "bush cricket" or also known as a "long-horned grasshopper".
Tettigoniidae - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tettigoniidae
To answer the question, what type of insect is this? All I can text is, Katydid it...
I don't know the official name for this insect, but in my part of the U.S. they are called either Leaf Hoppers or Leaf Cutters. They are born with natural camouflage that gives them the appearance of the leaves they eat on.
its called Leaf Insect (Phyllium philippinicus). They camouflage as leaves. I saw them a lot as a kid.
This is 'Bush cricket'.. belongs to family 'Tettigoniidae' ...commonly called katydids or 'Bush cricket'...There are more than 6,400 species. They are also known as long-horned grasshoppers, although they are more closely related to crickets and weta than to any type of grasshopper. The name is derived from the genus Tettigonia, first described by Carl Linnaeus in 1748. Part of the suborder Ensifera, it is the only family in the superfamily Tettigonioidea. Many tettigoniids exhibit mimicry and camouflage, commonly with shapes and colors similar to leaves.
It is a vile and deceptive creature. It cannot be trusted. It uses copyrighted and trademarked material from innocent trees and leaves and passes it off as its own. It has no respect for intellectual property. In the insect universe it is regularly voted as the most dishonest creature by its own peers.
Cristina Crickets says, "little monster, told me he was rich, claimed to have a degree from Harvard. One night he went out for some nectar and never came back. Few days later I discovered that two of my credit cards were missing. Bastard!"
Cosgrove Cockroach said, "he cheated me out of a piece of rotting particle board that had been in my family for 3,963 generations."
Fritz Firefly recounted, "I met him online. Claimed to be a Nigerian prince. Long story short, I'm out 25 grand."
Yes, my friends. whether he goes by the name of Leaf Hopper, Leaf Cutter, Bush Cricket or whatever alias he conjures up next, watch your wallets and keep the bug spray close at hand.
Around this house it's call "Cat Food." It's one of the most popular sources of entertainment for my Posse.
Aw, what a great post, and on topic. "Cat Food", huh!
I like that. My Cici probably would agree with you.
Way back in the year 2002, the grey aliens visited us and left some alienic insects that have the ability to transform into brain sucking and eyeball eating monsters. What you have here is called a Nepiculaminatis. This bug is a skin living bug, it buries itself in your skin at nights when you are asleep and sucks on the veins and works its way to the brain. You need to call MIB , ASAP. :-)
It is a kind of grasshopper in dark colour ( adapting to the environment with green, gray, dark, etc.). It eats normally leaves and vegetables. We call it a bug. It is not cricket or insect. Cats and even dogs play with them and also eat them up. They are found more at rainy seasons in our houses.
This particular insect is a Katydid, and this is also a pretty good picture the insect.
