The present paper provides distributional data for 68 Orthopteran species occurring in the West-Hungarian Borderland. 11 of them (Aiolopus thalassinus, Conocephalus dorsalis, Dociostaurus brevicollis, Eumodicogryllus bordigalensis, Meconema meridionale, Modicogryllus frontalis, Omocestus petraeus, Pezotettix giornae, Phaneroptera nana, Pteronemobius heydenii, Xya pfaendleri) are published for the first time from this region. According to our results, the character of the Orthoptera fauna of the region shows some species (Isophya camptoxypha, Pholidoptera aptera, Tettigonia cantans, Miramella alpina, Omocestus viridulus) inhabiting hilly and mountain habitats, showing a connection to the fauna of the Alps. These species, however, are mostly restricted to the westernmost Alpokalja mesoregion here. The presence of Isophya costata in near-natural hayfields, parallel to the relatively wide local distribution of Polysarcus denticauda in slightly disturbed humid meadows could be considered as a characteristic feature of the mesoregion Sopron–Vas Plain. According to data formerly published and new in this paper, no such features of the other two, less studied mesoregions (Zala Hills and Kemeneshát) have been found until now.
