Summary1.The sound-pressure pulses emitted under water by stridulating corixids have decay envelopes typical of an approximately exponentially damped oscillatory system (Fig. 1). Loud pulses are more strongly damped than soft pulses. The logarithmic decrement Λ is between 1.0 and 0.4 (Fig. 8).2.The Fourier spectra of these pulses have a pronounced, relatively narrow-band peak (Fig. 7). The apex of the peak (fundamental frequency) for male Corixa dentipes and C. punctata lies within a frequency… 
The resonance properties of the physical gill ofCorixa punctata and their significance in sound reception
TLDR
A computer-controlled method was developed by which the resonance properties of the respiratory air bubble of Corixa punctata could be measured in the freely moving animal under controlled acoustic conditions and the results are discussed in relation to the sound sensitivity of the tympanal organs and the function of the physical gill in sound production.
So Small, So Loud: Extremely High Sound Pressure Level from a Pygmy Aquatic Insect (Corixidae, Micronectinae)
TLDR
The calling song produced by the male of a small insect, the water boatman Micronecta scholtzi, appears as an extreme value, outperforming marine and terrestrial mammal vocalisations and may be interpreted as an exaggerated secondary sexual trait resulting from a runaway sexual selection without predation pressure.
Shrinking Wings for Ultrasonic Pitch Production: Hyperintense Ultra-Short-Wavelength Calls in a New Genus of Neotropical Katydids (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae)
TLDR
A new genus and three species of predaceous katydid from Colombia and Ecuador are reported in which males produce the highest frequency ultrasonic calling songs so far recorded from an arthropod.
Extreme call amplitude from near-field acoustic wave coupling in the stridulating water insect Micronecta scholtzi (Micronectinae)
TLDR
Modelling of a system of near-field coupling of acoustic sources to bubbles showing an exponential increase in sound power gain with decreasing distance that provides a simple solution to the stimulus of the air bubbles in Corixidae and Micronectinae and explains the discrepancy of M. scholtzi's extreme call volume are presented.
The call of the squeak beetle: bioacoustics of Hygrobia hermanni (Fabricius, 1775) revisited (Coleoptera: Hygrobiidae)
TLDR
The differences found between sexes suggest that sound production in squeak beetles may function in intraspecific communication, in addition to being an antipredator device.
The role of freshwater bioacoustics in ecological research
Conventional methodologies used to estimate biodiversity in freshwater ecosystems can be nonselective and invasive, sometimes leading to capture and potential injury of vulnerable species. Therefore,
Acoustic monitoring reveals diversity and surprising dynamics in tropical freshwater soundscapes
Freshwater systems are globally threatened and in need of enhanced monitoring and assessment. We applied soundscape recording and analysis—which presents an opportunity for long‐term, high‐resolution
Environmental Correlates of Sexual Signaling in the Heteroptera: A Prospective Study
TLDR
It is argued that looking for associations between mechanisms of sexual selection and particular ecologies will help to move towards a more predictive theory ofSexual selection, that links mechanisms and targets ofsexual selection to various ecologies.

Recording the sounds of hydropsychid larvae — A cautionary tale
TLDR
It was found that the material of which the recording chamber was made could have a pronounced effect on the structure of the signals, and low frequency distortion products can be produced when recording signals containing an ultrasonic component on equipment designed for audio use.

SummaryIn several cricket species (Gryllus campestris L., Gryllus bimaculatus de Geer, and Acheta domesticus L.) the sound-radiating parts of the tegmen have been determined for the calling song. The

TLDR
The fact that there is a flat response over the major portion of the range of auditory sensitivity in goldfish indicates that the swim bladder is most probably not a limiting factor in acoustic sensitivity, at least below 2000 Hz.
Das mesothorakale Tympanalorgan vonCorixa punctata Ill. (Heteroptera, Corixidae)
TLDR
Action potentials of the mesothoracic tympanic organ's two receptor units were recorded extracellularly and a hypothesis is proposed regarding the function of integumentary structures on the membrane in stimulus transformation.

An Audiospectrographic Study of Male Stridulation in the Genus Corixa Geoffr. (Hemiptera, Corixidae)
TLDR
The stridulation signals of three species of the Genus Corixa were investigated especially with respect to their spectral composition, and the threshold frequency responses, especially for one (A1) of both receptor units of the mesothoracic tympanic organ, correspond well to the frequency spectrum of the emitted sounds.

TLDR
A physical analysis of the calls of Sigara striata and Callicorixa praeusta and observations on the biological function of their phonobehaviour are dealt with and the variability in the structure of the Calls and their dependence on watertemperature have been analysed.
Stridulation and Its Significance in the Genus Cenocorixa (Hemiptera, Corixidae)
TLDR
Stridulation functions in the premating isolation of the species in this genus, and also functions as a calling signal facilitating pair-formation.
