During the early part of November 1953 while engaged upon an aphid survey of cereal lands in the picturesque Langkloof Valley of the South Eastern Cape, I was able to do a little collecting of grasshoppers in the veld adjoining the lands. Some of the new material which was collected from this area and the adjoining Great Karroo is descriptionbed below. With one exception, that being material donated by the Division of Locust Control and Research through the kindness of Mr. J. H. Kruger, all the material has been collected by myself and to avoid repetition I have omitted the collectors name from nearly all the descriptionptions.
