Montana barretii (Burr, 1912)


Montana barretii (Burr, 1912)  — Fig. 8View FIGURE 8 A. 

Locality: Portugal, Madeira (N 32°45', W 17°00'), 1.viii—11.ix.1992, leg. D. Erber (1 male recorded). The song of M. barretii  differs from the other species of this group, because the short verses do not contain microsyllables. Both types of verses, short and long, are made from one type of syllables only ( Fig. 8View FIGURE 8 A). Short verses have durations between ca. 100–300 ms, long verses between 1.3–4.5 s.
