Tettigonia viridissima (Linnaeus, 1758)


Tettigonia viridissima (Linnaeus, 1758) 

Agraecia incognita Piza, 1970  syn. nov.

It was a surprise to find this Eurasian species among the types. The four specimens actually have identification labels with the species name Locusta viridissima  , the locality names Fonsagrada and Lugo (a town and a province in Galicia, Spain), and the dates 8 and 25 July 1921, and 12 July 1922. In Piza’s description appear the dates, but the locality is declared unknown.
