A.V. Gorochov

Abstract. At present, 86 species and subspecies of the cricket subfamily Podoscirtinae are registered in Peru, and 46 of them are found in the territory covered by the Peruvian project on invertebrate fauna of the Ene and Tambo River Basins. From this territory, 16 taxa are here described as new to science: Perutrella ashaninka sp. nov.; Bezverkhovia lydia gen. et sp. nov.; Angustitrella superuncus sp. nov.; A. nigella sp. nov.; Aphonomorphus (Aphonomorphus) paramutus sp. nov.; A. (A.) hamatus sp. nov.; A. (A.) proximus tambo subsp. nov.; A. (A.) pichiguia sp. nov.; A. (A.) stipatus longifurca subsp. nov.; A. (Euaphonus) problematicus sp. nov.; A. (E.) firmus sp. nov.; A. (?) brachyphallus sp. nov.; Spiraphonus asymmetricus longiapex subsp. nov.; Phyllogryllus crassus sp. nov.; Diatrypa (?) intersecta sp. nov. For A. (A.) venado Gor., D. (Diatrypa) signata Gor., D. (D.) decora decora Gor. и D. (Latispeculum) venado Gor., previously unknown females are described. New data on distribution and systematical position of some taxa are also given.
