clicker round-winged katydid
Female (above) and male (below) some time after copulation, Buncombe County, North Carolina.
The female is continuing to eat
the spermatophylax. When she finishes it, she will eat the spermatophore, which by that
time will have moved its sperm into the female's sperm storage organ.
