A review of the genus Chortophaga (Orthoptera: Acrididae) among Nebraska populations: questioning the validity of Chortophaga australior Rehn and Hebard
Journal of Orthoptera Research 17 (1), 101-105
Abstract: Chortophaga australior Rehn and Hebard (Orthoptera: Acrididae) is considered a species distinct from Chortophaga viridifasciata (DeGeer). Collections across Nebraska have shown that the characters used to separate these two species are inconsistent and that the average state of these characters appears to be related to the time of the season during which the adults are collected. Until further study clarifies the status of C. australior, we suggest that its specific status be considered questionable.
