AbstractThe mole cricket Gryllotalpa gryllotalpa in de Dutch dunes (Orthoptera)
In recent years mole crickets Gryllotalpa gryllotalpa were found at 37 sites in the Dutch dunes.
Conservation measures to create moist dune valleys seem to play a positive role for mole crickets.
Half of the new records stemmed from recently created wet areas. A number of mole
crickets were caught at night during bird investigations with standing nets. Probably the change
of the environment in the dunes can develop more mole cricket sites in the region. Possibly the
species can colonize the vegetable garden complexes at the edge of the dunes, its main habitat
in the province of Zuid-Holland.
