Orthoptera of Michigan
PDF file, full title: The Orthoptera of Michigan — Biology, Keys, and Descriptions of Grasshoppers, Katydids, and Crickets.

The Orthoptera of Michigan, Biology, keys, and descriptions of grasshoppers, katydids and crickets by Roger Bland. MSU Extension Bulletin E-2815, 220 pp. ISBN - 1-56525-017-6. ordering information is online at:
