The cricket subfamily Phalangopsinae (Orthoptera: Gryllidae) in Peru

A.V. Gorochov

Abstract. At present, 58 species and subspecies of the cricket subfamily Phalangopsinae are registered in Peru, and 25 of them are found in the territory covered by the Peruvian project on invertebrate fauna of the Ene and Tambo River Basins. From this country, ten taxa are here described as new to science: Aclo­gryllus ashaninka sp. nov.; Rumea minispeculum sp. nov.; R. pacaya sp. nov.; Izerskya minutissima gen. et sp. nov.; Kevanacla orientalis zigzag subsp. nov.; Adelosgryllina subtrib. nov.; Adelosgryllus parasimilis sp. nov.; Luzara venado major subsp. nov.; Uvaroviella (Holacla) izerskyi multa subsp. nov. Previously unknown male is described for Modestozara satipo Gor. and for U. (Euacla) grandis (Des.-Grand.). New data on distribution and systematical position of some taxa as well as a brief discussion about Phalango­psinae classification are also given.
