Over twenty years ago the author decided upon specializing on the Group Melanopli as found in North America, and a number of papers dealing with this subject have already been published. It is now realized that years must elapse before sufficient material can be assembled and studied to make the treatment of certain groups as definite and final as is already possible for the majority. The literature on certain species is highly unsatisfactory and this is particularly true of Melanoplus viridipes and its nearest relatives. We therefore present at this time a study of the Gracilis and Viridipes Groups and describe a new species of the Tribulus Group with a brief discussion of its relatives, based on far larger series than it has ever before been possible to assemble, (733 specimens in addition to several hundred previously correctly reported).
