Abstract:

A new genus of bushcricket, Hermoniana n. gen., is erected for a new tettigoniid species. The only species of this genus, H. blondheimae n. sp., was collected at 2000 m altitude on Mt. Hermon, Israel. Platycleis (Incertana) erecta (Uvarov), described from central Israel, is synonymous with Platycleis (Decorana) buxtoni (Uvarov) found throughout Israel and Lebanon. The specimens of P. (D.) buxtoni found at higher elevations of Mt. Hermon are characterized as a distinct high-altitude population. Scotodrymadusa annulicornis crenulata (Uvarov) is elevated to S. crenulata stat. nov. and the female is described for the first time. S. palaestina (Uvarov) is synonymous with S. philbyi (Uvarov).
