Multimodal defensive strategies in larvae of two Hemichroa sawfly species
The two European sawfly species in the genus Hemichroa are a contrast in behaviour and appearance, since H. crocea is gregarious and brightly coloured, whereas H. australis is solitary and cryptic.Expand
Invitation by vibration: recruitment to feeding shelters in social caterpillars
It is shown that caterpillars use vibration signals to “invite” conspecifics to social gatherings, similar to other social animals that use acoustic communication to advertise resources. Expand
Predatory bug Picromerus bidens communicates at different frequency levels
It is shown that the vibratory song repertoire of P. bidens is broader than those of other predatory stinkbugs that have been investigated, and may facilitate location of individual sources of vibration within a group. Expand
Vibrational signals in a gregarious sawfly larva (Perga affinis): group coordination or competitive signaling?

This paper studies the use of two vibrational signals in a gregarious, processionary Australian sawfly larva, Perga affinis: tapping and contractions, and tests whether the signal is mostly cooperative or competitive in nature. Expand

This study shows that cooperative vibrational communication underlies the ability of a sap-feeding species to exploit plant resources during a narrow window of availability. Expand
Social Behavior of Larvae of the Neotropical Processionary Weevil Phelypera distigma (Boheman) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Hyperinae)
It is found that larvae transition from feeding in a line along the leaf margin to cycloalexic formations on the upper leaf surface via a coordinated back-up movement that brings the posterior tip of their abdomens into contact. Expand
Larval Communication and Group Foraging Dynamics in the Red-Headed Pine Sawfly, Neodiprion lecontei (Fitch) (Hymenoptera: Symphyta: Diprionidae)
The studies suggest red-headed pine sawflies use two-tiered or hierarchical communication cues necessitated by the loose manner in which groups colonize new feeding sites, and trail pheromones may help foraging larvae relocate their colony or its general vicinity. Expand
Vibrational communication and the ecology of group-living, herbivorous insects
Studies of groups of immature treehoppers, sawflies and butterflies suggest that vibrational communication can be important in each of these contexts, enhancing the ability of these group-living herbivores to exploit the resources of their host plants. Expand
