Three new species of Katydids from Mexico are described in Insara Walker, 1869: I. oaxacae and I. acutitegmina, respectively, collected in Oaxaca and Chiapas states and Arachnitus apterus n. sp. of Arachnitus Hebard, 1932 from Puebla and Oaxaca states. Copyright © 2011 Magnolia Press.

Two new species of Pyrgomorphidae of the Mexican endemic genus Ichthyotettix Rehn, 1901, are described: Ichthyotettix stricticaudatus n. sp. (from Oaxaca) and Ichthyotettix inexpectatus n. sp. (from Morelos and Michoacan). The identity of the genus Ichthyotettix, to date considered monotypic, within the tribe Ichthyotettigini is discussed and the type locality of Ichthyotettix mexicanus (Saussure, 1859) is examined and restricted to Veracruz state. The two new species are well characterised both for their morphological external characters as well for male genitalia. © 2011 · Magnolia Press.

Two new genera and seven new species, collected in the state of Oaxaca in Mexico, are described. The genera Reyesacris (R. amedegnatoae) and Oaxaca (O. colorata and O. carinata) are new to science. Melanoplus mixes, M. oaxacae and M. ludivinae are new species for the genus Melanoplus Stål, 1873 and Cephalotettix chinantecus is new species for the genus Cephalotettix Scudder, 1897.

The Ecuadorean species Dichopetala andeana Hebard, 1924, is transferred to the new genus Cohnia. Cohnia g. nov. is characterized by short pronotum, subexagonal undivided elongated female subgenital plate, regularly up-curved and coarsely serrulated ovipositor, male simple cerci and presence in male of a structure titillators-like. Cohnia andeanacomb. nov. is extensively illustrated and described, its song is presented for the first time as well as some ecological data. Copyright © 2010.

Authors analysed 33 supraspecific taxa of Palaearctic Platycleidini with unarmed prosternum, most of them hitherto considered genera or subgenera of Platycleis and Metrioptera. For each of them they give a short description of the characters revealing the correct classification of males and females. Then, they propose a more consistent classification, when both males and females of a supraspecific taxon are clearly distinct, they should be elevated to distinct genera. On the whole, they propose to classify Palaearctic taxa into 32 genera, for which they propose a key based on the characters used in this paper and illustrated by 140 photographs. Additionally, they describe the following new genera: Sardoplatycleis for Platycleis galvagnii from Sar-dinia, Amedegnatiana for Parnassiana vicheti from Mediterranean France; and the following new species: Platycleis buzzettii from Iran and Squamiana bressani from Uzbekistan. For each genus they list all the species known, pointing out also those which, for scarcity of specimens, have been tentatively classified within that genus and that probably should be better assigned to another one. Further, they synonymise Incertana with Decorana, define the actual taxonomical status of the group Roese-liana roeselii, R. fedtschenkoi, R. azami and R. brunneri, reinstate Tessellana carinata from Balkan peninsula, establish that T. nigrosignata is restricted only to S Italy, while in Balkan peninsula its related T. orina occurs. © 2011 Magnolia Press.

In this paper two new species of Leptophyes from southern Italy are described, L. calabra n. sp. and L. sicula n. sp.. Both species are similar to the common L. punctatissima and the recently described L. lisae from Greece, but can be identified by a combination of morphological and biacoustical characters. Descriptions of both species are provided and an illustrated key to the European species of Leptophyes is presented. These new findings are remarkable as the genus Leptophyes harbours only 15 species worldwide. This study suggests that the Leptophyes punctatissima - group in southern Europe is in need of a thorough survey. It is essential that bioacoustical information be involved in this study. © 2010 · Magnolia Press.
