Gryllotalpa gryllotalpa (Linnaeus, 1758)


94. Gryllotalpa gryllotalpa (Linnaeus, 1758)   = sjeverni rovac

First faunistic record for Croatia: Bogdanović et al. 2017

Also reported as: G. vulgaris Latreille, 1804   [partim] (e.g. Pungur 1899, Pokopac 1956)

Distribution in Croatia: Widely distributed according to the present data, recorded in all regions, but existing data lack information about diagnostic traits (titilator shape, song or molecular characteristics). Therefore, all records need confirmation (see Potential species).

Distribution in Europe: Widespread, from England, South Sweden and Northwestern European Russia in the north, to the Iberian Peninsula, Italy and the FYR Macedonia in the south ( Hochkirch et al. 2016).
