Genus Metrioptera in North America north of Mexico

The only native North American species in this genus is the bog katydid, Metrioptera sphagnorum, the only katydid species know only from Canada. Roesel's katydid, Metrioptera roeselii, was accidentally introduced to Montreal in the early 1950's and has since spread to the northeastern United States and to Illinois.
