genus Chorthippus Fieber, 1851  = livadni skakavci

Taxonomy of the genus is unclear, so here we list the species alphabetically, not assigned to subgenera, as proposed in Cigliano et al. (2017). The genus can be divided into species groups, of which the following groups and species are present in Croatia—(1) C. albomarginatus  group (including only C. oschei pusztaensis  ), (2) C. apricarius  group (including only C. apricarius  ), (3) C. biguttulus  group (including six species, and two additional subspecies— C. b. biguttulus  , C. bornhalmi  , C. brunneus  , C. eisentrauti  , C. mollis  with subspecies C. m. ignifer, C. m lesinensis  , C. m. mollis  , and C. v. vagans  ) and (4) C. dorsatus  group (including three species— C. dichrous  , C. dorsatus  , C. loratus  ). The group of Chorthippus parallelus  (in Europe includes C. montanus  , C. parallelus  , C. smardai  , C. tatrae  , in Croatia only C. parallelus  present) was assigned to a separate genus by Defaut (2012a), namely Pseudochorthippus  , and C. parallelus  is here accordingly treated as a species of that genus.
