The main aim of this monograph is to stress the necessity of comprehensive protection of the most endangered species of Orthoptera on the territory of the Republic of Serbia. As these insects are often limited in distribution and closely related to a particular habitat type, their protection is possible only with the permanent protection of their habitats. During multi-decade field surveys across Serbia and considering the literature data, we have reached the number of 35 taxa, which we believe are potentially endangered or on the verge of total extinction from Serbian fauna. It is about 18% of Serbia's Orthopteran fauna.
