I added a couple more photos with a slightly different view of the pronotum, but unfortunately I didn't get any shots with a really good view of it.

Thanks, the extra photographs helped a lot and I have revised my initial identification. The blunt dorsal process above the deep humeral sinus (clearly visible in the second picture) and strongly crenulate margins of the lateral lobes make this A. insolita.

Very cool, thanks! It's great to get this one identified after all these years. Unfortunately, I didn't get any other views of this one photographed a year earlier in the same location:
Round-headed Katydid
So it'll probably remain unidentified.

Actually, the ovipositor is clearly visible in that photo and identifies it also as insolita.
