The orthoptera are among the most important of the injurious insects of this State, almost all of the species being destructive, and scarcely one that can be considered as of any benefit. A list of the species occurring in the State is therefore of more than scientific interest and becomes important while considering the distribution of the destructive species. The present notes refer almost entirely to the central part of the State, principally in the vicinity of Ames, and there are, doubtless, many other species to be secured by careful collection with special reference to this group in this locality, and still more with collections in the extreme corners of the State.
