Evaluation of Morphological and Bioacoustics Characteristics of Cicadivetta tibialis (Panzer, 1798) (Cicadoidea: Tibicinidae) According to Samples Collected from the South East Mediterranean Region of Anatolia in Turkey

Abbas Mol


In this study, in terms of morphological and bioacoustics population of Cicadivetta tibialis from South East Mediterranean Anatolia of Turkey were studied and compared with data from the literature. The morphological features revealed that sample species have not exhibited significant variations according to literature. The sound of the species posses one type of song and this is consist of two phrases: Phrase I and II. The calling song begins in phrase I and continues for minutes (0.84-2.56 s) after the animal sharp to phrase II and continues for about four to nearly eight minutes (5.53-7.47 s), then phrase I repeated. Phrase I evaluated with T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7, and T10 parameters. In addition to previous studies, we take into account of T10 which is first T3. All of the data are evaluated by using simple statistical methods and evaluated the spectrum of calling song.
