Caption: Ant-mimic katydid nymph. Young instars of some Orthopteran species, such as certain katydids, resemble ants in appearance and behaviour. The long antennae are camouflaged to appear short, being black only at the base, and they are vibrated like ant antennae. Larger instars and the adults are of more typical katydid appearance and habits. The ant-mimicry provides protection from predators.
