Giant leaf katydid (Celidophylla albimacula) is a common but rarely seen inhabitant of Central American rainforests. This insect is nearly the size of the palm of a human hand, but so perfectly adapted to its environment that until 1990’s only three individuals of this species were known. I spotted this female sitting on a leaf of a cycad in the Brabilla National Park in Costa Rica.
