A previous paper (Robertson 1967) dealt with field records for Saltatorial Orthoptera and contained details of records made, plant species and collecting localities. The present paper includes similar records for the Dictyoptera. During the period when the field data were collected a Robinson type mercury vapour light trap using a 125 watt 220 volt bulb was in use at Ukiriguru, the main agricultural research centre for the area, 17 miles south of Mwanza.
