County Atlases

Below is a map and a list of all county atlases and similar publications for grasshoppers, crickets and allied insects - it's great to see that there are so many.

If you have a copy or a scan of any which do not have a link below and which could be put up here for download, please send it to orthoptera@ceh.ac.uk. If you have any additions or spot any mistakes, please also let us know.

And if you want to write an atlas for a county which is not yet covered we will be very happy to support you!
