The Orthoptera of Castro Verde Special Protection Area (Southern Portugal)

Latest version published by CIBIO (Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources) Portugal on Jul 12, 2017 CIBIO (Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources) Portugal

This dataset includes all the Orthoptera species recorded during a study performed in 2014 and 2015 mainly in Castro Verde Special Protection Area (SPA), southern Portugal, and is the first Orthoptera inventory conducted in the area. Orthopterans were visually recorded along transects placed in 61 sites, each composed of one forest plantation and one adjacent fallow field and. A total of 35 Orthoptera species was recorded, distributed among six of the 11 families known to occur in Portugal. Two species are recorded for the first time for Portugal: Dociostaurus hispanicus Bolivar, 1898 and Euryparyphes terrulentus (Serville, 1838). Furthermore, Platystolus martinezi (Bolívar, 1873), first recorded around 100 years ago in Portugal, is now recorded for the second time. Some of our records complement the current knowledge on species geographic distribution in southern Europe. Seven species expanded their known distribution to the south-westernmost location in Europe: Dociostaurus hispanicus, Euryparyphes terrulentus, Platycleis falx (Fabricius, 1775), Platycleis intermedia (Serville, 1838), Platystolus martinezi, Sphingonotus lluciapomaresi (Defaut, 2005) and Tylopsis lilifolia (Fabricius, 1793).

Geographic Coverage

The geographical area is located in the Castro Verde SPA, southern Portugal, in a a farmland landscape. The climate is Mediterranean, with hot summers (averaging 24 ºC [16–32 ºC] in July), mild winters (9 ºC [5–14 ºC] in January) and >75% of annual rainfall (500–600 mm) concentrated in October–March. The area is the most representative steppe area in Portugal, with 85.345 hectares of which around 60.000 hectares are pseudo-steppe (EC 2016). The landscape is flat or gently undulating (100–300 m a.s.l.) and dominated by an agricultural mosaic of cereal, pastures and grazed fallow land (Ribeiro et al. 2016). Tree cover is characterized by plantations of eucalyptus (Eucalyptus sp.), oaks (Quercus rotundifolia and Q. suber) and umbrella pines (Pinus pinea). Pine and oak plantations often have a grassy understorey grazed by livestock.

Sampling Methods

Each sampling site was composed of one forest plantation and one adjacent fallow field. The forest plantations consisted of one of the following types: pine, oak, eucalyptus and mixed pine-oak. Linear transects 50m long were placed in each of the forest plantation, adjacent fallow and the edge between both, and within each site we sampled 1 transect at the habitat edge, 3 transects in fallows and 1-3 transects in plantations, depending on the forest patch size.

Study Extent Specimens were sampled in 61 sites mostly included in the Castro Verde SPA, southern Portugal. The sampled area encompasses the municipalities of Castro Verde, Aljustrel, Almodôvar, Beja, Mértola and Ourique. Sampling was performed in 32 sampling sites in 2014 and the remaining 29 sites in 2015, in three periods each year (2014: 15 April – 15 May, 15 May – 4 June, 13 June – 1 July; 2015: 16 April – 17 May, 18 May – 1 June, 15 June – 23 June).
Quality Control Scientific nomenclature follows Cigliano et al. (2016).

Method step description:

  1. 1 - Orthopterans were recorded along the 50 m transects, within 50 cm on either side of the observer and collected, by direct capture with net, a representative sample of adults that appeared to be morphologically distinct. To complement the species inventory, within each sampling site we further collected individuals recorded outside the standardised 50 m transects, which appeared to be morphologically distinct. 2 - All individuals collected were later identified to species level in the laboratory, based on: Llucià-Pomares (2002), Defaut (2005a). and Defaut and Aulin (2008) for Aiolopus spp.; Barat (2012) for Bradyporinae; Defaut (2004) and García et al. (2005) for Dociostaurus spp.; Ragge and Reynolds (1984) for Euchorthippus spp.; Llorente and Pinedo (1990) for Odontura spp.; Cordero et al. (2009) for Oecanthus spp.; Defaut (2006) for Oedipoda spp.; Clemente et al. (1990) for Omocestus spp.; Massa (2012) and Llorente and Presa (1997) for Pamphagidae; and Husemann et al. (2013) and Defaut (2005b) for Sphingonothus spp.
