One could regard the acridines within clade E as "peg-less gomphocerines"-a possibility, given Otte's (1981) statement concerning the relative ease with which stridulatory pegs can be lost over evolutionary time.
Similar reservations about the monophyly of Oedipodinae* (G-M plus Duroniella) can be expressed, given the presence of acridines within clades J, K and M and of Melanotettix within L.
All, except Pnorisa, are acridines (sensu OSF2) and all are African.
The acridines at the base of the tree had fairly ancient ancestors preceding the Gomphocerinae* --Oedipodinae* split by 10-70 my.
