Although much attention has been paid to the musculature of the pterothorax of the Acrididae and especially to the modifications which it shows in brachypterous and apterous forms, no study has been made of the pterothorax of the Pneumoridae, although this group is considered, on the basis of its wing venation (Ragge, 1955), to be the most primitive of living Orthoptera.
