Abstract
New taxa of the tribe Phlugidini (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae), from the Andes and Pie de Monte Llanero, Colombia, with comments on the current status of the tribe Abstract: Parahlugiola helenae n. gen et n. sp. and Phlugiola. laurae n. sp. are described from the Andes and Andean foothills of Colombia. This is the first record of the genus Phlugiola outside the Amazon region. A key to the males of Phlugiola and a compari- son table of the main characters of the species are provided. The distribution, habits and stratification of the species within the forest are discussed. The status of the tribe Phlugidini within the family Tettigoniidae is commented upon.

This paper illustrates the biomechanics of sound production in the neotropical predaceous katydid Arachnoscelis arachnoides (Insecta: Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae). Described and previously known from only one male specimen, this genus of predaceous katydids resembles spiders in their general body appearance. To call distant females, male katydids produce songs by stridulation where one forewing possessing a sclerotized file rubs against a row of teeth (scraper) on the other wing. In most katydid s...

The phylogenetic relationships of Tettigoniidae (katydids and bush-crickets) were inferred using molecular sequence data. Six genes (18S rDNA, 28S rDNA, Cytochrome Oxidase II, Histone 3, Tubulin Alpha I, and Wingless) were sequenced for 135 ingroup taxa representing 16 of the 19 extant katydid subfamilies. Five subfamilies (Tettigoniinae, Pseudophyllinae, Mecopodinae, Meconematinae, and Listroscelidinae) were found to be paraphyletic under various tree reconstruction methods (Maximum Likelihood,...

This paper provides some observations on the anatomy of the neotropical katydid Arachnoscelis arachnoides Karny (In-secta: Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae). Arachnoscelis is a genus of predaceous katydids that comprise species that resemble spi-ders in their general body appearance. The type species, A. arachnoids , was described in 1891 from a single male collected in Colombia. Following the original description, these creatures were never found again, and were thought to have gone extinct or mistake...

Abstract The predaceous katydid species Arachnoscelis meriti, n. sp. (Listroscelidinae) and Phlugiola arborea, n. sp. (Meconematinae) are described herein. Keys to species of both genera based on morphological differences are also provided. Both species were collected from rainforest canopies in northern Peru. Based on the numbers of additional new forms collected, sorted and identified during the course of this study, many species in addition to these are new to science, providing evidence of a...

The tribal status of Phlugidini Eichler, 1938, is confirmed. A new definition of the tribe is suggested and the taxonomic relationships among genera related to the tribe are discussed. Two new genera, nine new species and one new combination are described from East Africa, New Guinea, Northern Australia, Sulawesi and Borneo. These new taxa are Phlugidia africana Kevan, Tenuiphlugis Kevan, Tenuiphlugis gressitti (Chopard, 19691, comb. nov., T. maai Jin, T. brittoni Jin, T. malkini Jin, Phlugis su...
