Hetrodes pupus ( Linnaeus, 1758)

References: Grant 2014 (nominate subspecies)

Material examined: 1 male, CHelb8948 (SF), SOUTH AFRICA, S. Africa Rep., Western Cape, 45 km W Laingsburg, Jagerskraal Farm , 33º13’S, 20º24’E, 4– 5.1.2017, leg. Kovtunovich V. (nominate subspecies) GoogleMaps .

Corresponding to the large body size (pronotum length 19.5 mm, width 22 mm) of the studied specimen, also its tegmina are very large ( Fig. 3 View FIGURE 3 ) and the stridulatory file is with 4.27 mm the longest of all specimens studied here. The number of teeth (44) is not unusually high [but distinctly larger than in the holotype of the subspecies Hetrodes pupus marginatus Walker (32; photo in OSF)], whereas the teeth intervals are quite wide due to the great length of the file. The calling song seems to be a long uninterrupted trill [ Fig. 7I View FIGURE 7 (from Grant 2014); see Table 2 View TABLE 2 ].

Chromosomes: 2n = 27 (26 + X0), FN = 27; pair 1–14 and X chromosomes acrocentric (3 males described earlier by Warchałowska-Śliwa & Bugrov, 2009); thin C-positive paracentromeric bands on all chromosomes.
