Montana carpetana (Bolívar, 1887)


Montana carpetana (Bolívar, 1887)  — Fig. 8View FIGURE 8 B. 

Locality: Spain, Salamanca, Gejuelo del Barro, OSF (Muñoz Alcón & Crespo Martínez 2014)

Typical for the group, in the calling song series of short verses alternate with one long one. While in the long verses only one type of syllables is found, the short syllables often end with microsyllables (Muñoz Alcón & Crespo Martínez 2013; Fig. 8View FIGURE 8 B), probably produced by fast closing movements of the tegmina as in M. macedonica  (see Heller 1988).
