[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Los caelíferos o celíferos (Caelifera) son un suborden de insectos herbívoros del orden Orthoptera, comúnmente conocidos como saltamontes o langostas. Se diferencian del otro suborden de ortópteros (Ensifera) porque las antenas son cortas y tienen casi siempre menos de 30 artejos.
Este suborden incluye muchas familias de saltamontes. Los saltamontes pueden saltar grandes distancias con sus potentes patas traseras, y en algunas ocasiones también son capaces de migrar. Esta circunstancia se da cuando se concentran demasiados individuos en una misma zona. Ante la escasez de alimento, su organismo libera una serie de hormonas que fomentan la movilidad alar para que los individuos puedan desplazarse volando a otros lugares y evitar así la competencia intraespecífica por el alimento. Algunas especies, como Locusta migratoria y Schistocerca gregaria, se desplazan en grandes enjambres diezmando las cosechas.
Algunas especies producen ruidos audibles, usualmente frotando los fémures contra las alas o el abdomen o con el golpeteo de las alas en el vuelo. Si cuentan con órgano de audición, este se encuentra los costados del primer segmento abdominal. Las patas traseras son típicamente largas y fuertes, apropiadas para saltar. Generalmente cuentan con alas pero solo las traseras son membranosas y les permiten volar, mientras que las delanteras son coriáceas y no son útiles en el vuelo. Las hembras son de mayor tamaño
Los huevos se colocan generalmente en una sustancia espumosa que los protege durante la incubación. Típicamente el número de huevos que pone una hembra ronda entre los 400 y 500.
