Abstract

A new species of the genus Hieroglyphus, Hieroglyphus kolhapurensis sp. nov. (Orthoptera: Hemiacridinae; Acrididae) from India is been described. The holotype (♂) was collected from the south—western part of India: Kolhapur (Maharashtra). The key morphological characters of the head, pronotum, cerci, tegmina, hind femora, phallic complex and the epiphallus have been illustrated with suitable line drawings to distinguish the reported new species from the other species of Hieroglyphus complex. A key to separate the subgenera and species is also provided.
