Australian katydids are among the most commonly seen Australian insects. Most are spectacularly colourful and have highly photogenic adaptive shapes. They are masters of deception in imitating twigs, bark, leaves and stems, and other insects. A Guide to the Katydids of Australia explores this diverse group of insects from the family Tettigoniidae, which comprises about 2000 species in Australia. It covers the entire fauna, including Norfolk and Lord Howe islands, but not Christmas Island. It highlights their relationships to plants, humans and the environment, and includes colour photographs of most species.
