From the home page:

"The Orthoptera Species File (OSF) is a taxonomic database of the world's orthopteroid insects. It contains full synonymic and taxonomic information for over 25,000 species and genera (all taxa described prior to 1998) of the Tettigonioidea (katydids and haglids),Grylloidea (crickets), Acridomorpha (locusts and grasshoppers: Acridoidea + Eumastacoidea + Trigonopterygoidea + Pneumoroidea + Pamphagoidea), Tetrigoidea (pygmy grasshoppers), and Tridactyloidea (sand crickets), as well as images and sounds for many species. A database for the Gryllacridoidea will become available in the second half of 1999. This site also includes a searchable database of entomologists working on the Orthoptera."

C.A. Triplehorn Insect Collection (OSUC)
[cite:1185947

The collection holds more than 3.5 million insect specimens and is one of the largest university insect collections in the world. All groups of insects are represented in the collection, and we are recognized for our holdings of leafhoppers (Cicadellidae), beetles (Coleoptera), and true flies (Diptera).

The Triplehorn Insect Collection is housed within the Museum of Biological Diversity, located on the West Campus of the Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.

On 29 April, 2005, the Ohio State Insect Collection was renamed in honor of Dr. Charles A. Triplehorn, Professor of Entomology and Curator at OSU between 1962 and 1992.
