- The present study was conducted at Khushal Garh area, District Kohat to find out diversity of Caeliferans fauna. Sampling of Caeliferans fauna was done during the period of July 2020 to July 2021. After collection, identification of all the specimens was done up to the species level. During this study, a total of 2 families of the Caeliferans were recorded which collectively comprised of 10 species. The identified Caeliferans species were Chrotogonus trachypterus Sphingonotus caerulans, Acrida exaltata, Schistocerca nitens, Trimertropis palllidipennis, Acorypha glaucopsiss, Anacridium aegyptium, Coryphistes ruricola, Heteracris littoraliss and Poekelocerus pictus. The species comprised of 6 sub families which were Pyrgomorphinae, Oedipodinae Acridinae Cyrtacanthacridiae Oedipodinae Calliptaminae Cyrtacanthacridiae Catantopinae Eyprepocnemidinae and Pyrgomorphinae, respectively. Since Caeliferans are a valuable group for bio indication, it is significant to get information on their multiplicity in such ecological circumstances.
