Table 1. Recording of type specimens. We started with the information given in the Orthoptera Species File (OSF) which contains
information on primary types compiled from published data (presumption). With this information we checked what is actually housed
in the museum collections (museum data). It follows a validity check. In case of disagreement between the information in OSF and
the actual museum data, it is necessary to consult the original publications. Finally the databases are updated.
