Grasshopper Suriname | Tettigoniidae sp.

Hello,

I found this beautiful grasshopper a few days ago near Fredberg, Suriname. Can you help me identify?

Thanks,
Dick

Not a grasshopper but a katydid (American English) or a bush cricket (British English). The scientific family name is Tettigoniidae, and there are likely well over 100 species in Suriname. I can't yet help with a further ID.

Cheers, Auke
