How does one distinguish a katydid from a cricket? This website provides

First-time visitors should scroll down to the "How to Use" section in
order to get quick and concise answers from the site, such as "How to
identify an unknown cricket, katydid, or cicada". On the top of the
homepage, visitors can also click on the "Crickets", "Katydids", or
"Cicadas" areas. Each of these areas includes a table of species,
complete with links to songs, photos, distribution maps, and drawings.
