Orthoptera comprises more than 28000 species worldwide. The insect order Orthoptera includes familiar insects like grasshoppers, locusts, crickets, and katydids.  The members of this group are readily identified by their strong hind legs which are modified for jumping. The Orthoptera collection at the Australian National Insect Collection is a large collection currently not databased. Will you help expose this collections data on this transcription expedition?
