Male specimens collected from Turkey, Erzincan, Kelkit-Pöske yolu, Ahmetli çıkışı, 2016 m, 30.VI.2013, 39°53.392'N, 39°21.588'E, (by D. Şirin, A. Mol & M.S. Taylan) and calling song recorded from two males at 28 °C in the field (by D. Şirin).
Description of song
Totally six records from two males were examined. The calling song includes isolated syllables (Figure 14b, c) separated by intervals of 456–1915 ms (833 ± 0.25). Syllable duration varies between 62 and 90 ms (78.83 ± 4.68). Oscillographic analyses showed that each syllable includes generally two elements (quieter and louder) (Figure 14d). First element of a syllable (rarely absent) is a quieter part and its duration varies between 5 and 6 ms (5.77 ± 0.19). The first element of syllable is followed by a louder part with an interval of 4–6 ms (5.27 ± 0.62). The louder part (second element) of syllable consists of 24–32 (27.63 ± 3.13) pulses and its duration lasts from 48 to 56 ms (51.21 ± 2.14). Sometimes the louder part is followed by another quieter part with an interval of 13–19 ms (16.03 ± 2.24) and duration of 4–8 ms (5.20 ± 0.72) (Figure 14c).
