Male specimens collected from Turkey, Antalya, Kemer, Tahtalı Dağları, Gürleyik mevkii, 36°33.067'N, 30°25.001'E, 1479 m, 2.VIII.2010 (by D. Şirin & U. Şirin) and calling song recorded from two males at 31 °C in the field (by D. Şirin).
Description of song
Total of five records from two males was examined. The calling song consists of regular phrases (Figure 17b) with an interval of 3.25–4.50 s. The phrase begins with characteristic high amplitude syllable in the all phrases. After this syllable phrases continue with a quiet beginning and maximum intensity is usually reached between 1/4 and 1/3 of the phrase, however, in some of the phrases there is often a more gradual crescendo roughly up to half of the phrase (Figure 17c). Phrases contain 86–103 syllables (94.2 ± 7.02) and duration varies between 2.27 and 2.77 s (2.55 ± 2.54). Amplitude of the impulses of each syllable from beginning to end of it is getting louder (Figure 17d). Therefore general song shape shows crescendo type (Figure 17c, 17d). The number of syllables in 100 ms is 4–5 (4.18 ± 0.19). Syllable duration varies between 14 and 28 ms (20.92 ± 1.79) with an interval of 3–7 ms (5.62 ± 0.11). Oscillographic analyses showed that each syllable consists of a single element and includes easily countable impulses 16–22 (19.72 ± 1.87) in a crescending structure (Figure 17d).
