Topographic homology conjectures (= THCs) of male forewing venation in extant ensiferan orthopterans (crickets, katydids, and their kin) and their close stem-relatives are re-evaluated, in order to test competing hypotheses on the origin(s) of the fi le (a row of teeth located on the ventral side of the forewing and used in stridulation). A new set of THCs (= STHC) is proposed, based on morphological data on the species †zeuneri Sharov, 1968, obscura Walker, 1869, monstrosa Uhler, 1864…

King Crickets, Raspy Crickets and Weta, Their Wings, Their Fossil Relatives
TLDR
Topographic homology conjectures (= THCs) in fore- and hind wing venation of extant king crickets, raspy crickets and weta are re-evaluated and it is suggested that this group stems in the Triassic, at least, i.e., ca 170 million years earlier than previously assumed.
Functional morphology of tegmina-based stridulation in the relict species Cyphoderris monstrosa (Orthoptera: Ensifera: Prophalangopsidae)
TLDR
This study confirms the mirror cell, in association with two other areas, as the acoustic resonator in the grig Cyphoderris monstrosa, which represents transitional stages between unspecialized forewings and derived conditions observed in modern species.
Structure of ovipositors and cladoendesis of Saltatoria, or Orchesopia
TLDR
Based on new hypotheses about character polarity in the ovipositor morphology and about evolution of stridulatory and hearing apparatuses, a new phylogenetic classification of Saltatoria is suggested, in which Dolichocera includes taxa with new circumscriptional names Stratensifera taxon n.
The steps towards an inconspicuous vein fusion documented in Stenosmylinae forewings (Neuroptera: Osmylidae)
TLDR
A complete transformation series ranging from the condition ‘ MP2 and CuA approximating’ to ‘MP2 andCuA fully fused, without distinct origin of MP2’, with intermediate conditions in which the origin ofMP2 has a cross-vein-like appearance is Documented.
The phallus in Tettigoniidae (Insecta: Orthoptera: Ensifera): revision of morphology and terminology, and discussion on its taxonomic importance and evolution.
TLDR
The exoskeletal morphology of the phallus in katydids, its components, and revised the terminology for them are studied, and potential functional relationships based on hypothetical morphological correlations between the shape of titillator and cerci are proposed.
Laying the foundations of evolutionary and systematic studies in crickets (Insecta, Orthoptera): a multilocus phylogenetic analysis
TLDR
The first phylogenetic hypothesis for the evolution of crickets sensu lato is proposed, based on analysis of 205 species, representing 88% of the subfamilies and 71% tribes currently listed in the database Orthoptera Species File (OSF).
The spider-like katydid Arachnoscelis (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae: Listroscelidinae): anatomical study of the genus.
TLDR
An anatomical comparaison of Arachnoscelis and its relatives is presented, and it is proposed that Arachnaescelis should be treated as a monotypic genus, which implies that other species previously described in Arachniscelis, should be placed in different genera.
Protomiamia yangi gen. et sp. nov. (Early Pennsylvanian; Xiaheyan, China), a sexually dimorphic Palaeozoic stem-Orthoptera
TLDR
A new species of stem-Orthoptera recovered from this locality is described, Protomiamia yangi gen. et sp.
The secret stridulatory file under the right tegmen in katydids (Orthoptera, Ensifera, Tettigonioidea).
TLDR
Crickets and katydids are distinguished by a left-over-right wing overlap, with a stridulatory file on the underside of the left tegmen, and a scraper on the right one, which usually is also equipped with a mirror as resonating structure.
Description of Two New Species of the Africana-Group of the Genus Gryllotalpa, with a Redescription of Gryllotalpa africana Beauvois (Orthoptera: Gryllotalpidae)
TLDR
The finding of the present study aims to help species identification and will help future taxonomists concerned with biodiversity of this group of the Genus Gryllotalpa from Cameroon.

Phylogeny of the Ensifera (Orthoptera): A Hypothesis Supporting Multiple Origins of Acoustical Signalling, Complex Spermatophores and Maternal Care in Crickets, Katydids, and Weta
TLDR
Numerical analyses of orthopteroid insects indicate that the Ensifera is a natural group as taxa in this suborder appear to form a separate clade (monophyletic group) in both cladistic and phe- netic analyses.
Head and Leg Morphology of Elongata Brongniart, 1893: 433 (Late Carboniferous, Archaeorthoptera): Phylogenetic and Palaeoecological Implications
TLDR
The relative length of leg segments, and the length of antennae, are reminiscent of the condition exhibited by phasmidans, suggesting a similar locomotion behavior, and Morphology of mandibules indicates a carnivorous food-habit.
Evidence for Carboniferous origin of the order Mantodea (Insecta: Dictyoptera) gained from forewing morphology
TLDR
The homology statement implies that the total-group Mantodea arose as soon as the Late Carboniferous, i.e. about 175 million years earlier than previously estimated, suggesting a survivorship of several main Pterygota lineages at the end-Permian extinction event higher than previously expected.
Fossil Orthoptera Ensifera
TLDR
It is shown that the Ensifera may be traced back into Upper Carboniferous rocks and are closely related to those of the Acridian group or short-horned grasshoppers.
Cladotypic Taxonomy Applied : Titanopterans are Orthopterans
TLDR
This fi rst application of cladotypic taxonomy unveiled several practical aspects of this system, and a system governing the adaptation of pre-occupied taxon names is developed based on various cases of character state formulations.
Phylogeny of Ensifera (Hexapoda: Orthoptera) using three ribosomal loci, with implications for the evolution of acoustic communication.
A Phylogenetic Analysis of the Evolution of the Stridulatory Apparatus in True Crickets (Orthoptera, Grylloidea)
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis reveals an unsuspected complexity in the evolution of acoustic communication in crickets, and indicates that the loss of the stridulum could be reversible, and that several modalities of evolutionary change exist for thestridulum.
Venation pattern of Orthoptera
TLDR
The clade Orthoptera is considered as an apomorphy-based group on the basis of this complex structure and, also by the presence of two branches of MA, MA1 and MA2 (but reversed in some recent taxa, having a MA simple).
Wing stridulation in a Jurassic katydid (Insecta, Orthoptera) produced low-pitched musical calls to attract females
TLDR
Providing an accurate insight into paleoacoustic ecology, the low-frequency musical song of A. musicus was well-adapted to communication in the lightly cluttered environment of the mid-Jurassic forest produced by coniferous trees and giant ferns, suggesting that reptilian, amphibian, and mammalian insectivores could have also heard A.Musicus' song.
