Spatial orientation in the bushcricket Leptophyes punctatissima (Phaneropterinae; Orthoptera): I. Phonotaxis to elevated and depressed sound sources


Many species of acoustically interacting insects live in a complex, arboreal or semi-arboreal habitat. Thus mate finding by phonotaxis requires sound localization in the horizontal and vertical plane. Here we investigated the ability of the duetting bushcricket Leptophyes punctatissima to orient to one of three speakers, positioned at different levels in an… (More)
