  • Teratological Testingby T.V.N. Persaud

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 99.00

    The various genera and species of the Orthopteran sub-family Tet­ tigidae may be recognized under several names in the reports of a number of entomologists. They range from the form Bulla of LINNE (1767), whose figures are unmistakable, to the recent descriptions of SCUDDER (1900), HANCOCK (1902), and other orthoptologists. Such words as Tettix, Tettiginae... more...
