This volume is the proceedings of an international conference on the evolution and phylogeny of Orthopteroidea, held in Siena, Italy, January 1986. The occasion for the conference was the 90th birthday of Dr. Felice Capra, of the Museo di Storia Nutrale di Genova. The proceedings consist of 53 papers, in English, ranging in length from 111 pages (Baccetti) to less than one page of text (Carlberg). Their subject matter is similarly diverse - as one would expect if more than 50 orthopterists were invited to give papers at a conference of this title.
