Bradyporus (Callimenus) conophallus Ünal, 2011  

Distribution. B. (Callimenus) conophallus   is endemic to Anatolia. It was recorded only from Isparta province of Turkey ( Figure 1A View FIGURE 1 ) (Ünal 2011b; Ünal 2017).

Song recording. Male specimens collected from Turkey, Isparta, Senirkent-Şuhut road, 3 km. roadside, 38°09.33’ N, 030°43.48’ E, 950 m, 02.VII.2015 (by D. Şirin, M.S. Taylan & A. Mol) and calling song recorded from three males at 31 °C in the field (D. Şirin & M.S. Taylan).

Description of song. Nine records from three males were examined. The calling song consists of polysyllabic sequences of variable duration (0.62– 3.99 s (2.51± 0.91)) with an interval of 5– 40.66 s (14.73 ± 8.91) ( Figure 1B View FIGURE 1 ). Sequences are consisting of 125–235 (211.67 ± 21.86) syllables. At the beginning of the sequences, the syllables are in low amplitude (nearly first 30 syllables) than the remaining syllables are in a sequence ( Figure 1C View FIGURE 1 ). The syllable period duration varies between 11 and 16 ms (13.02 ± 1.02). The number of syllables in 100 ms is 7–8 ( Figure 1C View FIGURE 1 ). Syllables have a crescendo structure and each of syllables includes 6–12 impulses (8.25 ± 1.28) ( Figure 1D View FIGURE 1 ).
