According to altitude and habitat type, species compositions are listed as follows: (A) 1,500- 1700m above sea level, the lower part of craggy bluffs: Paraphyllum antennatum Hancock and Synalibas sp.; (B) 1,500m a.s.l., grassland of forest edge: Coptotettix rotundatus Hancock, Euparatettix sp., Pseudoparatettix sp., Bolivaritettix sp. and Hyboella sp.; (C) 1,500m a.s.l., trunks of fallen trees on the forest floor: Potua coronata Bolivar, Metamazarredia borneensis Gtinther, Bolotettix sp. 1, sp. 2 and Amorphopus (?) sp.; CD) 1,200m a.s.1., mudstone open land nearby forest edge: Gen. sp.; (E) 800- 1,000m a.s.1., trunks of fallen trees by the sides of small stream: Discotettix belzebth (Serville) and Falconius sp.
