Stephen J. Darbyshire


Five males of the Northern True Katydid (Pterophylla camellifolia) are reported from Ottawa, Ontario (approximately 45°25'N, 75°42'W), in 2001 and 2002 at three separate locations. Based on its distribution and habits extralimital occurrences in Ottawa are likely due to chance introduction.
