In the last 'Beiheft' of Articulata a key and overview to the Orthoptera fauna of the Pyrenean region is presented, based on a literature search and own field work of the authors.

An illustrated key to the 150 species of the region is presented. In total 17 species are (almost) constricted to the region, e.g. Metrioptera buyssoni , several Ephippigerinae and Gomphoceridius brevipennis . In the concise species treatments information on the habitat and distribution (with a coarse distribution map) is provided. At the end of the booklet 34 species are depicted with colour photographs.
