There are four bush cricket species of the genus Barbitistes presently recorded in Croatia – B. kaltenbachi, B. ocskayi, B. serricauda and B. yersini, distribution of which is known only from separate literature data. This paper includes all available literature data combined with new, previously unpublished data from several museum collections and fieldworks, with an aim of obtaining a clearer picture of these species' area of distribution in Croatia. While three species of this genus – B. kaltenbachi, B. ocskayi and B. yersini, are primarily distributed along the Adriatic coast and on the islands, B. serricauda can be found exclusively in the continental part of the country. From a total of 125 different localities on which any of the Barbitistes species was recorded, B. yersini is known from more than 80, which makes its distribution more or less well known and not very likely to significantly change with further investigations. On the other hand, there is a single confirmed locality for B. kaltenbachi, namely the island of Hvar, while its presence on several other localities still has to be confirmed or disputed. The distribution of B. ocskayi, which greatly overlaps with the one of B. yersini, nevertheless includes a rather significant gap in the Dalmatian region, the cause of which is not quite clear, but could be illuminated by future investigations. In contrast to above mentioned species, B. serricauda is distributed only in the continental part of Croatia, with most findings in the Slavonian region, but its complete distribution still has to be ascertained.
