Brown Speckled Katydid/Bush Cricket

Here are a few pictures of an unidentified short-winged katydid/bush cricket (family: Tettigoniidae) sitting on a wild marijuana leaf. It has a greenish brown body with black/dark-brown speckles on its body and that is why I called it brown speckled katydid. It will be more suitable to name it as 'brown speckled short-winged katydid'.

Any help regarding the correct identification will be highly appreciated.

An interesting one there Birdy. Can't help yu with an ID but the short wings mean it is a juvenile.
