Moths of several families, notably the Noctuidae, Arctiidae and Geometridae, have tympanic organs sensitive to pulsed ultrasound (Eggers, 1919; Haskell & Belton, 1956; Roeder & Treat, 1957). It has long been suspected that moths could hear the cries of approaching bats which prey upon them (White, 1877) and a variety of behavioural responses to natural and artificial acoustic stimuli have been reported (Eggers, 1926; Schaller & Timm, 1950; Treat, 1955). An attempt has been made to track and to… CONTINUE READING
