Description
Yan Bingwu (Chinese, B. 1954) & Yang Wenqing (Chinese, B. 1951) "True Katydid" Signed lower right. Original Watercolor on Silk/Rice Paper.

Provenance: Collection of James A. Helzer (1946-2008), Founder of Unicover Corporation.

This painting originally appeared on the Fleetwood First Day Cover for the 33c True Katydid Classic Collection Series stamp issued October 1, 1999.

Classified as Pterophylla camellifolia, the True Katydid is one of several species of longhorned grasshoppers. This intriguing insect derives its name from the distinctive sound the male makes when rubbing its wings together to attract a female. True Katydids live in trees such as cherry, oak, maple and apple, and their slender, green bodies and thin, leaflike wing covers give them the appearance of a tree leaf. This camouflage serves as protection from predators. True Katydids have long antennae and jointed legs. Ridges located at the bases of the male's outer wings or wing covers are rubbed like a bow and fiddle, producing the unique "katydid" call. In the early fall, females lay about 100 to 150 eggs on leaves or twigs. When the young emerge in the spring, they resemble their parents, but because of their incomplete metamorphosis they are much smaller, lighter in color and lack wings. The most common species in the United States, True Katydids are found throughout the eastern regions of the Rocky Mountains. Other species that inhabit the eastern, western and southern areas of the United States have long, narrow wings and more slender bodies than the True Katydid. Many of these insects live in grass instead of trees.
