oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Some new and little known South African Acridoidea (Orthoptera)

Volume 19, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



This material presents evidence of the exceptional richness of the South African Acridid fauna. A complete list of the species known from Southern Africa has recently been published (Dirsh 1956, South African Animal Life. Uppsala) , but the present paper adds a surprising number of new species, and even genera, to those already known from that country. It is to be noted that most of the insects descriptionbed below are either brachypterous, or apterous, in many cases small and larva-like.
