In this work, a comprehensive inventory of Orthoptera and Mantoptera of the biological reserve of Sidi Boughaba was established. 15 species in total were identified and divided between Caelifera and Ensifera. The majority of Caelifera are Acrididae, distributed mainly among four subfamilies: Gomphocerinae with five species (Euchorthippus albolineatus, Dociostaurus maroccanus, Dociostaurus jagoi, Chorthippus jucundus, Stenobothrus stigmaticus), the Oedipodinae with four species (Oedipoda caerulescens, Paracinema tricolor, Aiolopus puissanti, Aiolopus strepens), the Calliptaminae and Eyprepocnemidinae with one species for each which are respectively (Calliptamus barbarus and Heteracris lieutaghii). The Ensifera are represented by the Gryllidae, (subfamily of Nemobiinae with one species (Nemobius sylvestris). The Mantidae are represented by two sub-families, the Mantinae with two species (Mantis religiosa and Sphodromantis viridis) and the Angelina represented by Euchomenella sp. On the plan ecologic, Dociostaurus maroccanus and Dociostaurus jagoi behave as the eurytopic insects, Stenobothrus stigmaticus, Chorthippus jucundus and Paracinema tricolor are the Stenotopic insects.
