Endemic for Turkey – East Anatolia (Figure 11a) (Karabağ 1961).
Male specimens collected from Turkey, Elazığ, Sivrice, Hazarbaba Kayak Merkezi civarı, 38°25.029'N, 39°18.766'E, 1790 m, 3.VII.2012 (by D. Şirin & A. Mol), and calling song recorded from two males at 30 °C in the field which is type locality of species (by D. Şirin).
Description of song
Totally five records from two males were examined. The calling song consists of a series of regular phrases (Figure 11b) with an interval 355–903 ms (567 ± 0.20). Phrases are consisting of 7–9 (7.23 ± 0.63) syllables. The phrases begin with a quiet (low amplitude) syllable (Figure 11c). Oscillographic analyses showed that each phrase involves a few couples of syllables (Figure 11d). Syllable couple duration varies between 54–65 ms (59.85 ± 2.72) with an interval of 3–6 ms (4.97 ± 0.73). First syllable in these couples last 22–27 ms (24.73 ± 1.58) and contain a louder beginning part [15–18 ms (16.67 ± 1.12)] and a quieter part [4–8 ms (6.62 ± 1.07)]. First syllable in these couples is followed by a second syllable (except first syllable) after an interval of 1–3 ms (1.22 ± 0.09). Duration of the second syllable varies between 31 and 37 ms (33.95 ± 2.17) and includes a louder part [19–23 ms (21.95 ± 1.36)] and a pulse like quieter part (except last syllable) with duration of 8–12 ms (10.72 ± 1.43).
