  • Title
    Species Diversity of Short Horned Grasshopper (Orthoptera - Acrididae) in Selected Grasslands of Solapur District, Maharashtra, India
    Type
    Miscellaneous
    Description
    In the class insects, grasshopper is one of the largest and diverse group. They are dominant above ground invertebrates in cultivated and in natural grasslands ecosystems and they are functionally important. For the first time survey and collection of short horned grasshopper (Orthoptera: Acrididae) was carried out from selected grasslands of Solapur district, Maharashtra, India. Short horned grasshopper species were surveyed in selected grasslands of Solapur district, Maharashtra, India. 7 species belonging to 7 different genera i.e. Acrida, Gastrimargus, Trilophidia, Catantops, Calaptenopsis, Chrotogonus and Atractomorpha and 4 different subfamilies Tryxalinae, Cedipodinae, Catantopinae and Pyrgomorphinae were recorded.

  • Title
    Orthopteroids in Kaziranga National Park, Assam, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Thirty-six species of orthopteroids belonging to 30 genera, and four families were recorded in different habitats viz., forestlands, savannahs and grasslands of the Kaziranga National Park (KNP) at Assam. The observations were recorded during the period of three years from January 2007 to December 2009, by periodical monthly visits to Kohora range (central range), Baguri range (western range) and Agoratoli range (eastern range) based on the habitat types selected. The family Acrididae had the largest species representation (19 species) followed by Tettigoniidae (nine species) and Mantidae (five species) while Gryllidae was represented by three species only. None of the species found in the study area are known to be threatened under any category of IUCN, 2010.

  • Title
    Distribution of Grasshoppers (Insecta: Orthoptera) among different host plants and habitats in two districts of Tamil Nadu, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    In a survey of grasshoppers in nine localities of northeastern Tamil Nadu, carried out from August 2004 to December 2006, 33 grasshopper species grouped under four families were recorded. Family Acrididae was found to be the predominant group of grasshoppers represented by 21 species, which was 63.6% of the total species collected. The acridids collected can be classified under seven subfamilies and 15 genera. Family Tettigoniidae was the second largest group represented by six species falling under five genera and three subfamilies, and this family contributed 18.2% to the total grasshopper species recorded in this study. Among the different habitats, grasses supported the highest number of 18 species (54.6%) while 11 species were surface grasshoppers. The painted grasshopper Poekilocerus pictus (Fab.) was collected from many plants viz., Calotropis, curry leaf, grass, groundnut, okra, and on ground. The maximum number of species was recorded from Manimangalam in Kancheepuram District during the entire study period.

  • Title
    Acridid (Orthoptera) fauna of agricultural ecosystem in some southern districts of Tamil Nadu, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Thirty-one species of Acridids were identified belonging to the families Acrididae (25 species) and Pyrgomorphidae (6 species) from the monocot and dicot crop fields in Madurai, Dindigul, Sivaganga, Virudhunagar, and Theni of the Southern districts of Tamil Nadu. The feeding guild of the acridids recorded 9 species of grass feeder, 1 species of dicot feeder and 21 species of mixed feeder. Among the Acridids collected 18 species were recorded as core species based on their abundance from the areas surveyed and the other 13 species were designated as satellite species due to their sporadic distribution.
