Endemic for Turkey – East Anatolia (Figure 10a) (Karabağ 1961).
Male specimens collected from Turkey, Malatya, Doğanşehir, Çığlık, 1791 m, 4.VII.2012 (by D. Şirin & A. Mol), and calling song recorded from one male at 30 °C in the field (by A. Mol).
Description of song
A total ofsix records from one male were examined. The calling song consists of a series of regular phrases (Figure 10b) with an interval of 262–604 ms (332 ± 0.11). Phrases are consisting of 11–15 (12.84 ± 0.83) syllables and the number of syllables in 100 ms is approximately two. The phrases begin with a quiet (low amplitude) syllable (Figure 10c). Oscillographic analyses showed that each phrase involves a few couples of syllables (Figure 10d). Syllable couple duration varies between 46–54 ms (50.85 ± 4.79) with an interval of 3–5 ms (4.74 ± 0.77). First syllable in these couples lasts 17–23 ms (21.23 ± 1.88) and contains a louder beginning part (15–18 ms (16.73 ± 1.03)) and a quieter part [3–6 ms (5.02 ± 0.97)]. First syllable in these couples is followed by a second syllable (except first syllable) after an interval of 1–3 ms (1.42 ± 0.11). Duration of the second syllable varies between 28–33 ms (30.15 ± 2.13).
