Revision of Sphingonotus translated

Roy Kleukers - 14 November 2011

In the latest volume of Matériaux Orthoptériques et Entomocénotiques the paper of Benediktov (2009, Travaux de la Société russe d’entomologie 80: 21-33) has been translated in French. This makes important research results on the difficult genus Sphingonotus available for western European researchers. Benediktov erects a new subgenus ( Parasphingonotus ) and Neosphingonotus is downgraded from genus to subgenus.
