The morphology of the complex tibial organs in the forelegs of two bushcricket species belonging to the Phaneropterinae and Decticinae (Tettigoniidae) is described comparatively. In both species the tibial organs are made up of the subgenual organ, the intermediate organ and the crista acustica; the latter are parts of the tympanal organs and serve as auditory receptors. The very thin tympana in the forelegs ofPholidoptera griseoaptera (Decticinae) are protected by tympanal covers whereas… CONTINUE READING
