In this peculiar Orthopteron the chromosomes are unusual in these respects: the number is low for one of the Saltatoria; there is an x-y idiochromosome pair; all the tetrads are individually distinguishable; the chromosomes are small, relatively and actually, in the very large first spermatocyte. The structural peculiarities of the animal are reflected in those of its germ cells, but as yet no correlation has been established.
