Communication with substrate-borne signals in small plant-dwelling insects.
Vibratory signals of plant-dwelling insects, such as land bugs of the families Cydnidae and Pentatomidae, are produced mainly by stridulation and/or vibration of some body part. Signals emitted byExpand

Vibrational communication in insects
Communication through substrate-borne vibrations has for long been recognized but in comparison with air-borne sound it has received very little attention. However, in recent years it has becomeExpand

Structure of atympanate tibial organs in legs of the cave‐living ensifera, Troglophilus neglectus (Gryllacridoidea, Raphidophoridae)
Troglophilus neglectus (Gryllacridoidea, Raphidophoridae) is a nocturnal Ensifera which can be found in caves of Slovenia. The anatomy of the tibial organs in the fore‐, mid‐, and hindlegs, as wellExpand

Communication with Signals Produced by Abdominal Vibration, Tremulation, and Percussion in Podisus maculiventris (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae)
Abstract Mating behaviors of the predaceous spined soldier bug, Podisus maculiventris (Say) (Pentatomidae: Asopinae), were observed, and vibrational signals used in intraspecific communication wereExpand

Disruption of the reproductive behaviour of Scaphoideus titanus by playback of vibrational signals
Scaphoideus titanus Ball (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae: Deltocephalinae) is the vector of the grapevine disease Flavescence dorée. In S. titanus the male–female duet (MFD), based on species‐specificExpand

Physiology of atympanate tibial organs in forelegs and midlegs of the cave-living Ensifera, Troglophilus neglectus (Raphidophoridae, Gryllacridoidea)
The complex tibial organs of the Ensiferan species Troglophilus neglectus (Raphidophoridae, Gryllacridoidea) do not differ significantly in their morphology in all six legs. They consist of a normalExpand

The Influence of Substrate on Male Responsiveness to the Female Calling Song in Nezara viridula
The female calling song (FCS) of the southern green stink bug Nezara viridula is composed of vibrational pulse trains that include either short pulses and a long pulse (FCS-1) or just short pulsesExpand

In solitary plant-dwelling stink bug species, success depends crucially on efficient mate location and recognition, mediated by signals transmitted through the plant. All stink bugs investigated soExpand

Vibrational directionality in the southern green stink bug, Nezara viridula (L.), is mediated by female song
We tested the hypothesis that male southern green stink bugs, Nezara viridula (L.), use substrate-borne songs to locate females. We recorded the responses of bugs on plants to the vibrations causedExpand
