AbstractAbout three years ago I undertook, on the suggestion of my friend V. I. Plotnikov, Director of the Central-Asian Station for Plant Protection in Tashkent, a general survey of the Acrididae of Central Asia, with a view of publishing a handbook for their identification and study. As a basis of this work served collections sent to me by Mr. Plotnikov, which proved to contain a number of undescribed species, or such as have been only very inadequately described by previous authors. A re-examination of Central-Asian specimens of other species, recorded from the country before, showed that in a number of cases they have been referred to known species incorrectly, being either distinct specifically, or belonging to well distinct geographical races. While the book on the Acrididae of Central Asia, containing keys, descriptions and figures, is hoped to be published in Russian shortly, I thought it imperative that all descriptions of new forms and notes of systematic and synonymic value should be published separately and in a more widely known language and the present paper is one of the series written to this end.
