Song Analyses of Cicadas of the Genera Aleeta Moulds and Tryella Moulds (Hemiptera: Cicadidae)

Proceedings of the Linnean Society of New South Wales
Volume 126 (20 Mar 2005)

Abstract: The songs of Aleeta curvicosta, Tryella castanea, T. crassa, T. kauma and T. rubra are analysed. Differences between the songs of the five species are discussed in addition to differences across the distribution of species and within populations. Timbal action of all four Tryella species was found to be similar to that of Aleeta curvicosta, that is a single muscle contraction produces multiple sound pulses as each rib of the timbal buckles. A corrigenda to a recent review of the systematics of these genera (Moulds 2003) is provided.
