Abstract

The Moroccan locust (D. maroccanus Th.) and the migratory locust (L. migratoria L.) in Ulcinj district, Montenegro.

Abstract

The soil type and vegetation of the permanent breeding sites of Dociostaurus maroccanus (Thnb.) and Locusta migratoria (L.) in a district in south-western Yugoslavia are described. The main habitat of D. maroccanus is an extensive loamy sand plain 2-3 m above sea level. L. migratoria is particularly associated with marshy vegetation dominated by the grass Erianthus ravennae, which grows in sandy hollows flooded in the wet season, and, in the case of gravid females, with the surrounding sandy ridges. All other habitats of Orthoptera distinguished in the area are fully described, and the distribution of the 59 other species of Orthoptera found within these habitats is given.
