Poecilimon doga Ünal, 2004


Poecilimon doga Ünal, 2004 (minutus -group)

TURKEY: Isparta, Davras Gebirge above Savköy , near ski lift (37.7667°N, 30.7167°E), 27.06.2002, leg. K.-G. Heller; 2 males recorded ( Fig. 6 View FIGURE 6 ) GoogleMaps ; Afyonkarahisar province, E of Başören (Suhut – Sandıkli road), pasture, keeps on Urtica , common, 1900 m (38.46630ºN, 30.38322ºE), 26.06.2014, leg. D. Chobanov, 1 male recorded ( Fig. 7 View FIGURE 7 ), stridulatory file studied GoogleMaps .

In structure, the song is quite similar to that of P. armeniacus . The males produced series with a quite variable duration of 7.7± 8.3 s (n=13; range 0.5–25 s) at intervals of 21.1±11.7 (n=4) s. A series contained on average about 100 syllables (SRR 12.5 Hz; T =27–28ºC; Fig. 6 View FIGURE 6 ). The syllables had a duration of 54.6±1.8 ms (n=5), but contained with 22±0.8 (n=7) much more impulses than that of the previous species, resulting in a mean interval of 2.6 ms between the impulses. At 19–20ºC the SRR was only 8.3 Hz and the syllables had a duration of about 93 ms ( Fig. 7 View FIGURE 7 ).
