A female nymph Lesser Anglewing in Prince George's Co., Maryland (8/5/2012). This species has what many of us consider the most familiar "katy-did" call. Separated from Greater Anglewing in this case by the squarely truncate front pronotal margin. A tooth on the front pronotal margin would indicate Greater Anglewing. Photo by Bill Hubick. (MBP list)
