Recent findings of the Sardinian endemic Bushcricket Uromenus annae (Targioni Tozzetti, 1881) allowed the authors to retrace the nomenclatorial history of the species. The rearing of living specimens resulted in the recording of the male song, previously unknown. Since the Neotype previously established by Fontana & Buzzetti (2001) is lost, a new N...

Uromenus annae (Targioni-Tozzetti 1881) was listed as NT (Near Threatened) by IUCN in the Red List of European Orthoptera, possibly extinct since no individuals were collected in the last half century. The finding of a living couple in 2018 renewed the attention on the species, resulting in the male calling song description [1] and further scattere...

Correct management of protected areas is one of the key factors in biodiversity conservation. Routine surveys in Mincio Natural Park resulted in the finding of a population of Zeuneriana marmorata (Fieber, 1853), listed as EN (Endangered) by IUCN in the Red List of European Orthoptera. Other known populations were known only for NE Adriatic coast i...

The moss-and-lichen mimic katydids of the group treated here are easily recognized by their long and slender wings held upward at an almost 45-degree angle. They live in rainforests of central and northern South America, with one species ranging southward to subtropical forest in NE Argentina. Here the recently introduced subgenus Anaphidna is rais...
