The males produced short echemes with a duration of 0.34± 0.1 s (n=21; range 0.23– 0.45 s; Fig. 8 View FIGURE 8 ). The intervals between the echemes had a duration of 4.2± 4.2 s (range 0.7– 14.4 s, n=18). An echeme contained on average 14 syllables (SRR 40.8 Hz; T =24ºC). The syllables had a mean duration of 3.2 ms and contained 1–3 impulses.

The spectrum of the song had its peak near 30 kHz ( Fig. 9 View FIGURE 9 ).
