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.
