In the course of preparing an account of the anatomy of the nervous system of the prothorax of Acanthacris ruficornis (Fab.) certain points relating to the anatomy of the muscular system were observed which differed in detail from the majority of published descriptionptions of other acridids. In general the organisation of thc prothoracic muscles agrecs well with those of Dissosteira carolina L. as descriptionbed by Snodgrass (1929) and attention will only be directed to points of difference. The ennumeration of the muscles follows the scheme developed by Snodgrass as far as possible.
