The Mystery of the Isle of Man’s Endangered Grasshopper

At the end of August 1962, Dr David Ragge of the British Museam (Natural History)'s Department of Entomology recieved a small collection of grasshoppers collected that month on the Isle of Man at his request by a colleague, R W Crosskey. Among them were two specimens, male and female, which were utterly unexpected; they belonged, in fact, to a species never before recorded in the British Isles, the Lesser Mottled Grasshopper, Stenobothrus stigmaticus.
