A fungal infection was identified as the cause of a high mortality rate of captive wartbiter cricket (Decticus verrucivorus) nymphs at the London Zoo (United Kingdom) in 1994. This species is threatened with extinction in the United Kingdom and the animals concerned were part of a captive breeding and reintroduction program. Following these findings, reintroductions were postponed and release sites were used only where there were no extant wartbiter crickets.
