Protandry and Its Relationship with Adult Size in Some Spanish Stoneflies Species (Plecoptera)
TLDR
Protandry in 11 stonefly species from Sierra Nevada (Spain) has been studied (recorded and quantified) and it is indicated that no species shows proteroginy, contradicting the theoretical prediction of increased dimorphism with increased protandry. Expand
The Mating Call of Isoperla bipartita Aubert, 1962 (Plecoptera, Perlodidae)
TLDR
The mating call of Isoperla bipartita is described, which can be considered as a ‘complex and modified pattern’ because the male produces calls of 1–4 rubs by group and the female answers overlapping the male call by percussion-rubbing-produced signals. Expand
Macroinvertebrate colonization of two different tree species leaf packs (native vs. introduced) in a Mediterranean stream
Allochthonous leaf litter from riparian vegetation represents the main energy source in small lotic systems, where canopy limits autochthonous primary production. In this study, leaf packs of twoExpand
Imaginal biology of the stonefly Hemimelaena flaviventris (Pictet, 1841) (Plecoptera: Perlodidae)
TLDR
The morphology and size of the eggs of this species are described, indicating some parameters pertaining to the clutch, such as maximum fecundity encountered, the maximum number of clutches per female, and the number of eggs per clutch. Expand
On the identity of Isoperla curtata (Plecoptera: Perlodidae): behavioural and molecular approaches show the existence of two separate species
TLDR
Examination of variation in mating calls and cytochrome c oxidase subunit I sequences for two populations from north-central and southern Spain supports the presence of two species, one of which corresponds to the nominal taxon, I. curtata, while southern populations represent a new species, Isoperla morenica, described herein. Expand
Male calling, mating and oviposition in Isoperla curtata (Plecoptera: Perlodidae)
TLDR
The reproductive biology of Isoperla curtata, an endemic species from the Southern Iberian Peninsula, is described and the male's mating call has a diphasic pattern, and the position adopted by the male during mating is different from that described for other stonefly species. Expand
Intraspecific and interspecific variation in drumming signals in the genus Capnioneura (Plecoptera: Capniidae)
TLDR
The hypothesis that stonefly drumming plays an important role as a reproductive isolating mechanism as well as intraspecific and interspecific variation is supported. Expand
The Drumming of Isoperla pallida Aubert and Guadalgenus franzi (Aubert) (Plecoptera, Perlodidae), and Review and Evolutionary Considerations of Southern Iberian Peninsula Perlodidae
TLDR
An evolutionary approach to the vibrational communication diversification in the perlodids of the Southern Iberian Peninsula is presented, showing a complexity graduation from the more simple drumming calls to the rubbing call of I. bipartita and intermediate drumming call of other Isoperla species, consistent with the drumming evolution paradigm of Stewart (2001). Expand
First record of the drumming signals of stoneflies Capnopsis Morton, 1896 and Protonemura Kempny, 1898 genera (Plecoptera, Capniidae and Nemouridae)
TLDR
It is extraordinary that females produced signals when males were absent, and so the female signal can be also considered as a call and not only an answer, as usually pointed out in stoneflies. Expand
First record of male drumming call of the genus Capnioneura Ris, 1905 (Plecoptera, Capniidae)
TLDR
The male call of Capnioneura mitis, produced by drumming, is recorded and analyzed for the first time and can be catalogued as an ancestral or near‐ancestral percussive monophasic signal. Expand
