  • ISSN : 0013-8789



This paper is an account of the anatomy of the nervous system of the prothorax of the Tree Locust, Acanthacris. The methods of study are similar to those descriptionbed in the first paper of this series (Ewer, 1953). In the course of this study it was found that, in a number of features, the muscular anatomy of the prothorax of Acanthacris differed from that of other acridids which have been studied. These points have been descriptionbed in an earlier publication dealing specifically with this matter. (Ewer, 1955)
