Right tegmen of Pachytrachis tumidus.

In the period 1985-1995 a study was made of the Orthoptera of the Durmitor area in Montenegro. The region proved to be extremely rich with more than a 100 species of Orthoptera. In this first paper the astonishing number of seven new bush-crickets ( Leptophyes intermedia, Isophya clara, Poecilimon pseudornatus, Poecilimon nonveilleri, Poecilimon affinis dinaricus, Poecilimon albolineatus,  Pachytrachis tumidus ) and one cockroach ( Phyllodromica montenegrina ) are described.
