A list of the Tettigoniidae (Orthoptera) of the East Usambara Mountains is presented and 16 new species are described from East Africa. A total number of 29 Tettigoniidae species is recorded for the East Usambara Mountains. New species are described from the Shimba Hills in Kenya, coastal Tanzania from the Kazimzumbwi forest reserve, Mt Kilimanjaro, the East and West Usambara and Uluguru Mountains in Tanzania, namely in Conocephalinae Afroagraecia pwania n. sp., Afroagraecia shimbaensis n. sp… Expand
New data and taxa for Orthoptera Tettigoniidae and Acrididae from tropical Africa
TLDR
The results of a long-term study on the Orthoptera collected in tropical Africa and preserved in different European natural history museums are reported, finding new records or unknown taxonomical characters for five species of Horatosphaga. Expand

A checklist of Ensifera and Acridomorpha of Kazimzumbwi Forest Reserve, Kisarawe near Dar es Salaam is given and eight new Tettigoniidae species described. These are the Agraeciini speciesExpand
New genera, species and records of Phaneropterinae (Orthoptera, Phaneropteridae) from sub-Saharan Africa
TLDR
The tribe Terpnistrini Brunner Von Wattenwyl, 1878 is resurrected and two African representatives of the American genus Symmetropleura Brunner von WattenWyl,1878 are included in two new genera. Expand
Review of the African genera Arantia Stål and Goetia Karsch (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae: Phaneropterinae).
TLDR
The genus Arantia is reviewed, the distribution and distinguishing characters given and the tribe Arantiini is synonymized with Holochlorini. Expand
Tettigoniidae (Insecta: Orthoptera) collected in tropical forests of Zambia, Cameroon, Gabon and São Tomé during the entomological expeditions of African Natural History Research Trust
Summary The present study is based on a significant sample of Orthoptera, mainly Tettigonoidea, collected by the African Natural History Research Trust in four African countries; a total of 109 taxaExpand
Ecology, acoustics and chromosomes of the East African genus Afroanthracites Hemp & Ingrisch (Orthoptera, Tettigoniidae, Conocephalinae, Agraeciini) with the description of new species
TLDR
The data set suggests that the African Agraeciini is of monophyletic origin, with a common ancestor of Afroagraecia and Afroanthracites in Africa. Expand
Review of the Plangia graminea (Serville) complex and the description of new Plangia species from East Africa (Orthoptera: Phaneropteridae, Phaneropterinae) with data on habitat, bioacoustics, and chromosomes
TLDR
Niche specialization and the male calling song are discussed as drivers for speciation in fully alate and thus mobile taxa in Plangia suggesting different mechanisms leading to these differences. Expand
Spotted males, uniform females and the lowest chromosome number in Tettigoniids recorded: Review of the genus Gonatoxia Karsch (Orthoptera, Phaneropterinae)
TLDR
Gonatoxia species may be used as bioindicators, their presence suggesting valuable habitats that are vanishing rapidly in East Africa and showing extreme differences in chromosome numbers suggesting rapid evolutionary changes. Expand

Assemblages of orthopteroid insects along environmental gradients in central and southern Madagascar
TLDR
A significant association between habitat management and species rareness is found, where the number of rare species was higher in natural/unmanaged habitats than in natural and unmanaged habitats. Expand
