A simplification of Hubbell's method for trapping and preserving specimens of Ceuthophilus (Orthoptera, Gryllacrididae)By J. R. Beaudry

The author provides instructions for baiting a pitfall trap for Ceuthophilus spp.
which is less messy than that described by Hubbel (1)
, who partially fills the jar with molasses. A dilute molasses solution is instead swirled onto the inner surface of a jar, with the excess liquid. The sticky film on the glass is then allowed to dry with the jar rolled on its side periodically.
I have used this method to good effect near the exit of rain water drainage pipes that drain into ditches and ponds and such. A modern tip is to dry the film in a microwave oven, opening it periodically to rotate.

Abstract: The Nearctic shield-back katydid genus Neduba is revised. Species boundaries were demarcated by molecular phylogenetic analysis, morphology, quantitative analysis of calling songs, and karyotypes. Nine previously described species are redescribed: N. carinata, N. castanea, N. convexa, N. diabolica, N. extincta, N. macneilli, N. propsti, N. sierranus, and N. steindachneri, and twelve new species are described: N. ambagiosa sp. n., N. arborea sp. n., N. cascadia sp. n., N. duplocantans sp. n., N. inversa sp. n., N. longiplutea sp. n., N. lucubrata sp. n., N. oblongata sp. n., N. prorocantans sp. n., N. radicata sp. n., N. radocantans sp. n., and N. sequoia sp. n. We chose a lectotype for N. steindachneri and transferred N. picturata from a junior synonym of N. diabolica to a junior synonym of N. steindachneri. Diversification in this relict group reflects cycles of allopatric isolation and secondary contact amidst the tumultuous, evolving geography of western North America. The taxonomy and phylogenies presented in this revision lay the groundwork for studies of speciation, biogeography, hybrid zones, and behavioral evolution. Given that one Neduba species is already extinct from human environmental disturbance, we suggest conservation priorities for the genus.
