Title: La fonction d’apparence chez les Tettigonioidea (insectes orthoptères ensifères)
Author: Leroy, Yveline
Abstract: Five different morphological types can be distinguished among Tettigonioidea (Orthoptera) : the «standard» type, the «vertical flat», the «horizontal flat», the «elongated» and the «spherical». The last four help to conceal the insect within its environment. These morphological types are defined biometri- cally. The resemblance to the surrounding vegetation is enhanced not only by a variety of colours, patterns and microstructures of the integument, but also by special behaviour patterns and coapta tions (Cuénot, 1926).
