Abstract

In the recent monographic account on the grasshopper fauna of Slovenian Istria, the migratory locust Locusta migratoria has not been included on the regional species list. Along with historical data on the occurrence of the species in the region dating back to the 15th to 18th centuries and two overlooked published records in the last two decades, new observations of migratory locust in April and September 2020 at three localities in Slovenian Istria are presented. In conclusion, the conservation status of this protected grasshopper species in Slovenia is briefly discussed.
