Abstract: Brachytrupes megacephalus (Lefèbvre, 1827) is a relatively large cricket with predominant but not exclusive distribution across northern Africa. It favours sandy habitats in coastal and Saharan hyper-arid regions. The present contribution seeks to evaluate the level of vulnerability of populations of this stenoecious species occurring on Malta to sea-level rise. Following ground-truthing during stridulation activity, drone survey technologies were used to identify and cartographically delineate the spatial extent of sub-populations.
