Welcome to the most comprehensive assessment of Vermont Orthoptera ever assembled. The Atlas of Vermont Orthoptera is also a living survey, growing every year with new discoveries and updated distribution maps.

The Atlas covers 81 confirmed Orthoptera species in Vermont. You can find photos, distribution maps, phenology, conservation status and other data in the Species Profiles section.

We also welcome your contributions. Every sighting counts, even common species. We continue to grow this atlas with contributions from skilled entomologists and casual observers alike. We cannot properly assess the status of Vermont’s Orthoptera without more data. So please join the project and report what you find. Thanks.
