equivalent to tribe Chrysochraontini
group Chrysochroantes Brunner von Wattenwyl 1893 (of tribe Acrididae). Based on genus Chrysochraon Fischer, 1853
tribe Chrysochraontini ?Otte, 1995
Moderately stout-bodied; face slanting; lateral faveolae (geometrically shaped pits obove and to the side of the antennae) not, or (in California/Oregon species) slightly visible from above; antennae slender but somewhat flattened in adults; wings shorter than end of hind femora (knees); tegmina broad in males; hind tibiae and/or lower side of hind femur usually orange or red (yellow in males of Chrysochraon).
This group is apparently very closely related to the Gomphocerus Group.
