Cone-headed Katydid (Raspolia Sp)

Family Tettigoniidae
 I have now photographed 2 species of Cone-headed katydids which I cannot get identified.
 This one has very distinctive white eye which should make it easy but either it is a new species or not a very common one.
 This mouth looks scary. :)

I dub it Raspolia Joanis.

LOL!! Thanks Gaelyn. I always wanted a millipede named after me. :)
