Ultrasonic bioacoustics and stridulum morphology reveal cryptic species among Lipotactes big-eyed katydids (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae: Lipotactinae) from Borneo
TLDR
It is established that the specimens from Borneo are different from L. virescens and that the populations from Kuala Belalong, Belait, and Sandakan represent different ethospecies, and it is demonstrated that both stridulum morphology and call structures can be useful in separating Lipotactinae species.
Crickets of the subfamily Eneopterinae (Orthoptera: Grylloidea) from Sandakan, Sabah: one new species and calling songs of a sympatric species.
TLDR
Based on a recent orthopteran survey in Sandakan, one new species of Le binthus Stål is described: Lebinthus sandakan sp.
Uncovering the Grylloidea and Tettigonioidea (Orthoptera: Ensifera) in the Forest Research Center (Sepilok) Entomological Collection.
TLDR
This work examined, identified, and imaged 12 and 45 species of Grylloidea and Tettigonioidea respectively from the collection to facilitate taxonomic research by making the species in the collection accessible for everyone.
Phylogeny, systematics and evolution of calling songs of the Lebinthini crickets (Orthoptera, Grylloidea, Eneopterinae), with description of two new genera
The Lebinthini crickets are distributed in Southeast Asia, Western Pacific and tropical South America. They represent more than half of the described species in the subfamily Eneopterinae. These
Revision of the cricket genus Nisitrus Saussure (Orthoptera: Gryllidae: Eneopterinae) and descriptions of five new species
Nisitrus Saussure, 1878 is a diurnal and monophyletic group of eneopterine crickets found in parts of Southeast Asia. Species often have vivid colourations which make them charismatic photograph
Ultrasonic songs and stridulum anatomy of Asiophlugis crystal predatory katydids (Tettigonioidea: Meconematinae: Phlugidini)
ABSTRACT The behavioural ecology of ultrasonic-singing katydids is not well understood, and the general bioacoustics, barely known for a few Neotropical Meconematinae, tends to be overlooked for
New species and taxonomic notes of scaly crickets (Orthoptera: Mogoplistidae: Mogoplistinae) from Borneo.
TLDR
Recent orthopteran surveys in the hyper-diverse Borneo allow us to review the scaly crickets from the subfamily Mogoplistinae there and discover and describe the male, as well as formally naming Cycloptiloides bimaculata Tan, Japir Chung, sp.
A taxonomic study on the Bornean and Philippines Sword-tailed Crickets in the genus Rhicnogryllus Chopard, 1925 (Orthoptera: Trgonidiidae; Trigonidiinae).
TLDR
The hypothesis is that Rhicnogryllus is a non-monophyletic and artificial genus, and that the genus should comprise only Southeast Asian members (since the type species RhicNogryLLus fascipes Chopard, 1925 is known from the Philippines).
New taxa of crickets (Orthoptera: Grylloidea: Gryllinae, Phaloriinae and Pteroplistinae) from northern Borneo (Belait and Sandakan).
TLDR
Three species new to science of the Gryllid subfamilies Gryllinae and Pteroplistinae are described from Brunei and a new species of cricket of the subfamily Phaloriinae is also described.
New taxa of crickets (Orthoptera: Grylloidea: Phaloriinae, Phalangopsinae, Itarinae and Podoscirtinae) from Borneo (Brunei Darussalam and Sandakan).
Three new species were described from Borneo: Itara (Bornitara) spinosa sp. nov. and Aphonoides duri sp. nov. from Brunei and Varitrella (Cantotrella) suikei sp. nov. from Sandakan in Sabah. We
