Thread subject: Diptera.info :: Orthoptera - side keels ?
Posted by BubikolRamios on 10-09-2013 22:47
Chorthippus parallelus is told from similar species by the approximately parallel nature of the bars (pronotal side-keels)
What does that mean "keels" ? The outer most 2 vertical lines (out of 3) on prothorax, here:?
I have some samples where these keels are absent ?
like this: http://agrozoo.ne...9b6b9ffb5f
"Keels" - must this be color marked or even just brake in surface ?
See forinstance this:http://www.flickr...576836571/
Cant decide what it is, nor on any other image on net of Oedipoda caerulescens for thtat matter.
Are keels straight, V opened, absent ?
Any latin naming for those "keels" ?
Making grasshoper key ...
