Abstract

With exceptions as stated in the text, 44 species and subspecies of the genus Heteracris are diagnosed, illustrated and keyed and their distribution is mapped. Six species nefasitensis, juliea, zulu, drakensbergensis, acuticercus, trimaculata and two subspecies calliptamoides testacea and brevipennis nyambeniensis are described as new. Three new generic and three subgeneric synonymies are proposed. Four former subspecies are raised to the rank of species and two species are relegated to the rank of subspecies. Eight lectotypes and two neotypes are designated. A key to the Afrotropical genera of subfamily Eyprepocnemidinae is given together with brief notes on their intergeneric relationships. The genus Brownacris Dirsh is transferred from the Eyreprepocnemidinae to the Catantopinae.
