Guide to the orthoptera of Southern Europe

Is there a good guide – preferably under £200* - to the orthoptera of Southern Europe, esp. Italy and Greece?

Thank you

Mark Burgess

*i.e., not The Orthoptera of Europe

Orthoptera books

If only there were! For what little is available go to and look under Sources. I have Willemse's volumes for Greece, but they are of limited use for field identification, being intended for collectors or museum workers who have dead material available. The fact of the matter is that the fauna of Southern Europe is difficult with many groups of very similar species.
