Cyprus Orthoptera - Autumn 2013

September 28-October 3, 2013:

Everywhere was extremely dry and most of the grassy areas were parched and whitened by the heat. Relatively few Orthoptera were found compared to the Spring and those which were seen were difficult to photograph against the grey-brown background. All were taken in western Cyprus (mainly to the east of Paphos and near Polis).

Acrida ungarica
Acrotylus insubricus
Acrotylus patruelis
Calliptamus barbarus
Calliptamus barbarus (same individual as above)
Oedipoda miniata
Chorthippus cf. bornhalmi
