In a previous publication (Ewer, 1953) the gross anatomy of the metathoracic neryous system of Acanthacris ruficornis(Fab.) has been descriptionbed. In the present paper an account is given of the corresponding structures in the mesothorax. As is to be expected, there are very considerable similarities between the two segments. The majority of descriptionptions given here are therefore brief and no figures are provided of structures already illustrated in the previous account of the metathorax.
