Tettigonia armeniaca Tarbinsky, 1940 

Material examined. TURKEY: [Bayburt]  , Gümüshane, Soganlı Gecidi , 7–7500 ft, 25.7.1960, 2 males (leg. K.M. Guichard & D.H. Harvey)  ; Hakkari, Kırkbulak yaylası, c. 3200 m, 3.8.1953, 2 males (leg. T. Karabağ)  ; Hakkari civarı, 1700 m, 2.8.1955, 1 male (leg. T. Karabağ)  ; Hakkari, Karadag , 2800 m, 15.8.1954, 1 female (leg. P.H. Davis)  ; Van, Altındere, Hara civarı, 1500 m, 7.8.1953, 1 female (leg. T. Karabağ) ( NHMUKAbout NHMUK)  .

Remarks. Salman (1978) and Ünal (2012) recorded some populations of T. caudata  from NE Turkey with shorter tegmina than the typical forms, which probably belong to this species. Grzywacz et al. (2017) recently synonymized two Turkish endemics, Tettigonia acutipennis Ebner, 1946  and Tettigonia turcica Ramme, 1951  , with this species. They distinguished from T. caudata  by the shorter tegmina, variable song and low genetic distances between the populations.

The 2 males from Soğanlı Geçidi above and 1 male from Hakkari without exact locality were given by Grzywacz et al., 2017. They also recorded this species from Ağrı, Horasan, Saclıdağ pass; Şavşat-Ardahan road; [Tunceli], Pülümür; and [Erzurum], İspir in Turkey.
