Checklist of Ontario Orthopteroids

Many moons ago, I co-wrote a checklist of Ontario 'orthopteroids' to update the taxonomy and provide something that naturalists could work off of when they were trying to determine species present at a site. When the "Grasshoppers, Crickets and Katydids of Ontario" project was first created, I created a species list in the observations that incorporated the Orthoptera portion of the checklist but, it appears, this was lost or hidden when the type of project changed. To continue to encourage people to continue documenting the provincial fauna, the link to the checklist is here (https://journal.lib.uoguelph.ca/index.php/eso/article/view/3732/3785). If you are interested in a pdf and can't get access to it, let me know and I would be happy to send a copy along.

Please note that the fauna has already changed a bit. There are now three Ectobius (Blattodea) species known from Ontario, and two additional crickets (Hapithus agitator and Phyllopalpus pulchellus, both of which have a number of iNaturalist observations from southwestern Ontario).

Cheers
