Endemic for Turkey, Bolkar Mountains (Figure 5a) (Çıplak 2000).
Male specimens collected from Turkey, Niğde, Ulukışla, Karagöl Yolu, Bolkar Dağları, 2285 m (type locality), 12.VIII.2011 (by M. S. Taylan, A. Aydın) and calling song recorded from two males at 25 °C in the field (by M. S. Taylan).
Description of song
Total of the six records from two males was examined. The calling song consists of a series of regular phrases (Figure 5b) with an interval of 509–1259 ms (0.76 ± 0.10). Phrase durations vary between 219–346 ms (294 ± 0.04) and phrases consist of 4–6 (5.21 ± 0.54) syllables. The first and second syllables at the beginning of the phrase are quieter and shorter (having low amplitudes) than the following ones (Figure 5c). Syllable duration varies between 17 and 41 ms (30.74 ± 4.08) with an interval of 21–47 ms (28.52 ± 3.13). Oscillographic analyses showed that each syllable contains two parts. First part of syllables relatively short and consist of comprised song elements (Figure 5d). First parts generally last 8–13 ms (11.71 ± 1.16) and are followed by second part after an interval of 0–5 ms (1.22 ± 0.48). The second syllable part includes several high amplitudes elements (Figure 5d). These elements number is always 3–4 in first syllable and following respectively 9–10, 12–13, 13–15, 16–18 and 16–18 in last syllable. The second syllable part is much louder (except of the first syllable) and longer than the first part and duration varies between 9 and 27 ms (16.71 ± 3.76).
