The North American Grasshoppers, volume II, Acrididae, Oedipodinae
By Daniel Otte
Harvard, 1984
ISBN: 0-674-62661-3
Cite: 150416 with citation markup [cite:150416]
This is a very thorough treatment of the Band-wing Grasshoppers. It is full of information on behavior, has descriptions and maps of all species, as well as high quality illustrations of nearly all. It is extremely useful as an identification guide, as well as for learning about these fascinating insects. It covers all of North America from Panama northward. The treatment is still nearly up to date, with little having changed since it was published. Long out of print, it is now available again from Harvard University Press
