    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.

    Description
    Thirty seven species of locusts and grasshoppers representing 26 genera, four tribes and 12 subfamilies belonging to the families Pyrgomorphidae, Catantopidae and Acrididae are reported from different localities of Bihar. Their distinguishing characters and bio-ecological data are provided along with keys to tribes and subfamilies.

  • Title
    Female genitalia as a taxonomic tool in the classification of Indian Acridoidea (Orthoptera)
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    A comparative study on female genitalia was carried out in Indian species of the superfamily Acridoidea. An attempt has been made to describe and illustrate the different structures viz., spermatheca, ovipositor, sub genital plate, supra-anal plate and cerci of female in Acridids with an aim to discover their significance in order to make the identification of genera and species, together with other generic characters more perfect and convenient. Genitalic structures particularly female subgenital plate, ovipositor and spermatheca makes it possible to put forward some suggestions regarding interrelations of families and subfamilies of Acridoidea more clearly than the external characters.

  • 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.
