Leaf False Katydid (Caedicia sp.), Sumatra Indonesia

This photo was taken in Bengkulu Sumatra Indonesia. This katydid has green color all over its body, and the wings resemble to a green leaf. The length of its hind leg is 75mm, the length of body from head to end of wing is about 50mm.  This katydid surely from the subfamily of Phaneropterinae. The looks of this species is not only resemble to the species under genus of Caedicia, but also resemble to species under genus of Phaneroptera. But i am pretty sure that this katydid is under genus of Caedicia.
