Abstract

A new grasshopper species, Physocrobylus tessa, collected from the East Usambara Mountains (NE Tanzania) is described and the genus Physocrobylus Dirsh, 1951 is assigned to the subfamily Coptacridinae on the basis of external and internal characters. Some notes on the ecology of the species are made. Modified keys to the African genera of the subfamily Coptacridinae and to the two species of the genus are given
