oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - A teratological specimen of Taphronota calliparea (Schaum) (Orthoptera : Acrididae)
Regeneration of the antennae is fairly common among orthopteroid insects, the 'heteromorphous', limb-like organs produced in Carausius morasus. It is, however, less commonly recorded for Acrididae although it has long been known. An early record of its occurrence in Euthystira brachyptera (Ocsk.) is provided by Graber (1867).
