I found this Katydid in my garden yesterday. Going by photos I can find on the web the species appears to be the Common Garden Katydid (Caedicia simplex). However given that there are over a thousand katydid species in Australia, I'm not 100% sure. (I've got a big collection of flora and fauna ID books, but don't yet possess the Guide to the Katydids of Australia.)

They've been a bit slow this year. This one is from a plant that self-sprouted in the native garden at the front of my house. Delicious!
