The bushcricket species Decticus albifrons, Decticus verrucivorus and Pholidoptera griseoaptera (Tettigoniidae) belong to the same subfamily (Decticinae) but differ significantly in body size. In spite of the great differences in the dimensions of the forelegs, where the auditory organs are located, the most sensitive range of the hearing threshold lies between 6 and 25 kHz in each case. Only in the frequency range from 2 to 5 kHz and above 25 kHz, significant differences are present. The… CONTINUE READING
