Katydids are great leaf mimics. Bright green bodies, wings and heads are common among this type of insect. The Greater Angle-wing is no exception. Veins on the wings look like the veins on a leaf. The wings are longer than the body and overlap each other when closed. The tip of the wings come to a point, much like a willow leaf. Antennae are shorter than most other types of katydids. Its song alternates between slow lisps and fast clicks.
Females lay white, flat eggs in shingled lines on twigs. They can be attacked by parasitic wasps. Adults are active during autumn, and they are common in areas with lots of vegetation.
