Review of the genus Eupholidoptera (Orthoptera, Tettigoniidae): different genitalia, uniform song
TLDR
The bush cricket genus Eupholidoptera, distributed across the northern Mediterranean Basin from Southern France to Israel, is reviewed and radiation within the genus is the result of divergence in genitalia.
A review of Chorthippus species with angled pronotal lateral keels from Greece with special reference to transitional populations between some Peloponnesean taxa (Orthoptera, Acrididae)
This paper presents a summary of the current knowledge on the systematics of the Greek taxa of Chorthippus, morphologically characterised by angled lateral pronotal keels (usually grouped as
Phylogeny and biogeography Eupholidoptera Mařan (Orthoptera, Tettigoniidae): morphological speciation in correlation with the geographical evolution of the eastern Mediterranean
TLDR
Epholidoptera Mařan is a Mediterranean lineage of Tettigoniidae, restricted to the northern and eastern basin of the Mediterranean, with a significant number of species found on the Aegean islands, and radiation in the genus is a result of divergence in morphology.
Human Land use Threatens Endemic Wetland Species: The Case of Chorthippus lacustris (La Greca and Messina 1975) (Orthoptera: Acrididae) in Epirus, Greece
TLDR
Restoring wet grasslands, protecting them from further urbanisation and drainage, and monitoring species population are the main measures proposed for its conservation.
Poecilimon mytilenensis Werner, a polytypic phaneropterid bushcricket from the Aegean island of Lesbos (Orthoptera, Tettigonioidea), differing in male mating structures
TLDR
Morphological data and a detailed distribution map, descriptions and oscillograms of male song of both subspecies, female song of the nominate subspecies and some data on the unusual mating behavior are provided.
Rhacocleis Fieber 1853 and Pterolepis Rambur 1838, distinct species groups or not ?
TLDR
The armature of the upper inner margin of the fore tibia proved a more reliable character than the traditional hind tibial armature to separate Pterolepis and Rhacocleis, indicating that the synonymy of RhacOCleis with Pterolespis proposed in Heller et al. (1998), should be re-evaluated.
