Montana eversmanni (Kittary, 1849)


Montana eversmanni (Kittary, 1849)  —songtype I 

Locality : Kazakhstan, Naursum reserve, vii.1972, leg. V. Guseva. 

According to the data presented by Zhantiev (1981) M. eversmanni  belongs to this group. Its song consists of long series of three-syllabic echemes. In the temporal characters, the song is quite similar to the long verses of M. stricta  and M. macedonica  (see below) or in general to the song of Metrioptera bicolor  (see the data in Zhantiev 1981 for this species). See below for songtype II.
