Taxonomic and biogeographic revision of the New Guinean genus Ophiotettix Walker, 1871 (Tetrigidae: Metrodorinae: Ophiotettigini trib. nov.), with the descriptions of 33 new species
TLDR
Long-headed pygmy grasshoppers from the New Guinean region (New Guinea and adjacent islands) are taxonomically and biogeographically reviewed and a new tribe is erected, Ophiotettigini trib.
Systematics and biogeography of the genus Scaria Bolívar, 1887 (Orthoptera: Tetrigidae: Batrachideinae).
TLDR
A biogeographical analysis of dispersion-vicariance indicates that the origin of the genus Scaria was probably in the Inambari endemism center as the only reconstruction of the resulting ancestral distribution, five dispersions and three vicariance events being postulated.
Taxonomic and biogeographic revision of the genus Lamellitettigodes (Orthoptera: Tetrigidae) with description of two new species and additional notes on Lamellitettix, Probolotettix, and Scelimena

  • Biology
    Journal of Orthoptera Research
  • 9 March 2019
TLDR
The genus Lamellitettigodes Günther, 1939 from Southeast Asia is reviewed and one species is transferred from Tetrix Latreille, 1802 to Lamellingtonix Hancock, 1904, where it is no longer regarded as a subspecies of L. contractus, but a separate species.
An annotated checklist of the Orthoptera (Saltatoria) of Cyprus
TLDR
For the first time a critical, annotated checklist of the Orthoptera of Cyprus is published and it is argued that Modicogryllus cyprius is a valid species, based on the morphology of the epiphallus and analysis of song.
The importance of validated alpha taxonomy for phylogenetic and DNA barcoding studies: a comment on species identification of pygmy grasshoppers (Orthoptera, Tetrigidae)
TLDR
This case highlights the need for correct species identification and provides an opportunity to recommend some aspects of Good Taxonomic Practice (GTP) in Tetrigidae to reduce the number of erroneous identifications.
A new species and morphometric analysis of Cladonotella (Tetrigidae: Cladonotinae)
TLDR
To quantify differences between species of Cladonotella, the author used morphological characters to construct a neighbor-joining tree, and recovered the new species as distinct from congeners.
Nymph inadvertently described as new species for a fourth time? On the identity of Euscelimena hardi (Tetrigidae: Scelimeninae) with general remarks on the identification of pygmy grasshopper nymphs.
TLDR
This commentary provides evidence that E. hardi is a nymph of E. harpago (Serville, 1838) and presents general remarks on how to distinguish pygmy grasshopper nymphs and adults.
Cockscomb-shaped twighopper, Cladonotus bhaskari sp. n., a new and rare pygmy grasshopper species from Sri Lanka (Orthoptera: Tetrigidae: Cladonotinae).
TLDR
The paper describes a new species of a Sri Lankan twighopper, genus Cladonotus Saussure, 1862, based on a single female specimen collected and photographed by T. Kirschey in 2016 in Sinharaja rainforest.
