Abstract

Two new mole crickets of the genus Scapteriscus Scudder (Orthoptera: Grylloidea: Gryllotalpidae) are described from Colombia: S. cerberus, sp. nov. and S. zeuneri, sp. nov. The first species can be recognized by its robust appearance, large pronotum and small separated ocelli. In contrast, the second species is characterized by its large ocelli which are very close together.
