A new Species of the Genus Gammarotettix from
California (Orthoptera, Tettigoniidae).
By MORGAN HEBARD, Philadelphia, Pa.
Gammarotettix cyclocercus new species.
Closely related to the genotype, G. bilobatus (Thomas), dif-
fering in the somewhat more slender form and strikingly dif-
ferent male cerci, which in bilobatns are awl-like, but in the
present species are longer and strongly incurved. In cyclocer-
cus the male supra-anal plate is similar, but somewhat more de-
cidedly produced. The somewhat more slender form appears
to be the only character available in separating females of the
All previously definitely recorded material of bilobatns, as
well as other specimens of that species before us, were taken
in the coastal region and coast ranges of California, while
the present species is known from a locality on the lower west-
ern slopes of the Sierras.
