This katydid species is only the second ever recorded from the small mountainous country of Lesotho. It is potentially new to science and can be found at high elevations 2600 metres (8530 ft) on rocky slopes with shrubby vegetation.
This katydid feeds and hunts other katydids and insects – and will often sit-and-wait during the daylight hours with its outstretched legs waiting to pounce on its prey.
Lesotho, Southern Africa.
This is a small ranged species.
