Male great grig Cyphoderris monstrosa, photographed by James Miskelly.

Belongs within: Ensifera.
Contains: Apohaglida.

The Haglida is a clade within the Orthoptera ancestrally characterised by the presence in males of a 'fan' in the forewings, an expansion between the branches of the posterior cubital vein (Béthoux & Nel 2002).

Synapomorphies (from Béthoux & Nel 2002): Forewings with RP posteriorly ramified, with its branches distally ramified or RP simple; handle (pseudo-vein between origin of anastomosis CuA+CuPaα and CuPaβ) present; fan present (reversed in some derived taxa); branches of CuA + CuPaα strongly approximate (reversed in some derived taxa).
