This is a new, undescribed species of Typophyllum.  Order Orthoptera and family Tettigoniidae, the two seen here are leaf-mimicking katydids. In this photo, a male on the left, and much smaller than the female, is maintaining pressure on the spermatophore he has produced so that it becomes partially ingested by the female. A part of this spermatophore also becomes a food gift for the female. Identification provided by Holger Braun.
