Feature Expedition

Australian Museum Grasshoppers (Pygmy) - Tetrigidae

SpecimensAustralian Museum Entomology Collection

Welcome to a new Australian Museum Entomology expedition! This expedition is going to look at the family Tetrigidae. They are a family of Orthoptera, the order that includes crickets and grasshoppers. Tetrigids are typically less than 20 millimeters long and have a long pronotum that covers their abdomen and sometimes even their wings. They are found in temperate and tropical regions around the world. Temperate species often live near streams and ponds, while tropical species may be arboreal or live on the forest floor. They are herbivores and some species even eat algae.

This expedition is part of the Australian Museum's Collection Enhancement Project (CEP). The CEP will result in new levels of access to the AM’s diverse collections, making digital images and meta data easily accessible to First Nations communities, scientists, researchers, students and individuals from Australia and abroad.
