Dragan Chobanov presents an overview of changes in the Orthoptera list of Bulgaria in a recently published volume of Articulata. He adds nine species and one subspecies, among which Isophya pavelii (with a redescription), Barbitistes ocskayi , Platycleis nigrosignata, Chorthippus vagans dissimilis and Chorthippus oschei.

Furthermore the list is cleaned up by omitting 15 species and one subspecies. This results in a total of 213 species for Bulgaria.
