Communication with substrate-borne signals in small plant-dwelling insects.
TLDR
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, and the low attenuation enables long-range communication on the same plant under standing wave conditions.
Vibrational communication in insects
TLDR
The courtship behavior of the southern green stink bug Nezara viridula (L.) (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) is taken as a representative model in illustrating some principal mechanisms of vibrational communication in insects.
Disruption of the reproductive behaviour of Scaphoideus titanus by playback of vibrational signals
TLDR
The results indicate that the vibrational communication channel is open to interference either from abiotic environmental noise or from signals produced by sexual competitors or heterospecifics, and suggests that a detailed understanding of leafhopper behaviour is essential for trying new approaches in the development of more environmentally friendly control practices.

Physiology of atympanate tibial organs in forelegs and midlegs of the cave-living Ensifera, Troglophilus neglectus (Raphidophoridae, Gryllacridoidea)
TLDR
In the Troglophilinae the subgenual and intermediate organs are structurally very similar to those of the midleg receptor organs of tettigoniids; only the most distal part of the intermediate organ and the crista acoustica is missing.
Structure of atympanate tibial organs in legs of the cave‐living ensifera, Troglophilus neglectus (Gryllacridoidea, Raphidophoridae)
TLDR
The results indicate that the complex tibial organs in all legs of T. neglectus are primarily vibrosensitive, and they appear to be more primitive than those found in members of the Tettigoniidae and the Gwllidae.

TLDR
Responses of the leg vibratory receptor neurons of the bugNezara viridula to substrate vibrations were recorded electrophysiologically and analysed and the origins of the low (LFR), middle (MFR) and high frequency receptor neurons (HFR) are discussed.
Vibrational directionality in the southern green stink bug, Nezara viridula (L.), is mediated by female song
TLDR
Vibrational directionality was elicited by artificial pure tones whose spectral and temporal parameters were similar to those of natural female song and by artificial sound, which caused males to walk, respond with the calling and courtship songs and to approach the source of the song with characteristic search behaviour at junctions between branches on the plants.
The Influence of Substrate on Male Responsiveness to the Female Calling Song in Nezara viridula
TLDR
It is concluded that female calling song pulse trains of different temporal structure have the same function in vibrational communication of the species.
