Orthopera are a group of well-known insects that are found in different ecosystems. They damage cultivations and they are important bioindicators for the enviroments. The object of this work is studying taxonomy of Orthopera Order in some stations of Vlore area (Albania). The material is collected during 2022-2023. In this work we refer 5 families, 23 genders and 27 species. By systematic analyzes results that the most represented family is Acrididae with 15 species or with a frequency of 55.55%. The least represented families are Tetrigidae dhe Mogoplistidae with 1 specie or with a frequence of 3.7 %. This shows that the stations ecosystems where is collected the biological material for Acididae family offer suitable conditions. Lepenica station habitats displayed a bigger diversity compared with other stations, with 16 species or a frequence of 59.25%, while Dukat station fewer species with 6 species 22.22% frequency. This shows that the habitats in Lepenica station offer favorable conditions for the species of Orthoptera Order.
