The female calling song (FCS) of the southern green stink bug Nezara viridula is composed of vibrational pulse trains that include either short pulses and a long pulse (FCS-1) or just short pulses (FCS-2). Their function in communication was studied by investigating male vibratory responses to natural and artificial signals on artificial and natural substrates. On a loudspeaker membrane, FCS-1 triggered in males from a Slovene and a French population significantly more courtship songs (MCrS… Expand

Variability of vibratory signals and mate choice selectivity in the southern green stink bug
TLDR
Analyzing the temporal and spectral characteristics of MCrS and FCS1 pulse trains of males and females from a French and a Guadeloupe population concluded that, although males prefer FCS2 from their own population, they recognise F CS1 from French and Guadaloupe N. viridula females as species-specific female calls. Expand
The effect of noise on sexual behaviour of the southern green stink bug Nezara viridula
TLDR
It is shown that female calling frequency shift is the main method of reducing the effect of signal masking in N. viridula vibrational communication. Expand
Species Recognition During Substrate-Borne Communication in Nezara viridula (L.) (Pentatomidae: Heteroptera)
TLDR
Males were able to distinguish songs of different temporal and frequency parameters and responded best to values characteristic of the song of conspecific females, which are tuned to the resonant properties of the herbaceous plants used for intraspecific signal transmission during communication. Expand
The effect of vibratory disturbance on sexual behaviour of the southern green stink bug Nezara viridula (Heteroptera, Pentatomidae)
TLDR
Frequency shift by calling females is the main strategy for reducing interference by competitive signalers in N. viridula vibrational communication. Expand
Vibrational Communication in Two Sympatric Species of Mantophasmatodea (Heelwalkers)
TLDR
The drumming behavior in the control situation (no playback) suggests that males sometimes call in the absence of other individuals, and the communication via percussion of the abdomen on the substrate for species recognition and mate location of males and females of two sympatric species was investigated. Expand
Vibrational communication and mating behaviour of Dichelops melacanthus (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) recorded from loudspeaker membranes and plants
TLDR
The presence of species and sex‐specific songs during mating confirms the important role of vibrational communication in mate location and recognition in various stink bugs species. Expand
Vibrational communication and mating behaviour of Dichelops melacanthus (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) recorded from loudspeaker membranes and plants
TLDR
The presence of species and sex-specific songs during mating confirms the important role of vibrational communication in mate location and recognition in various stink bugs species. Expand
Male Bugs Modulate Pheromone Emission in Response to Vibratory Signals from Conspecifics
TLDR
Male Nezara viridula emit a volatile sex pheromone that acts as a long-range attractant to females that was stable in males stimulated with male rivalry songs, and it decreased in males stimulating with a 100-Hz artificial signal. Expand
Vibratory signals of four Neotropical stink bug species
Abstract.  The stink bugs Acrosternum impicticorne, Euschistus heros, Piezodorus guildinii and Thyanta perditor (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) feed and mate on the same host plants and constitute majorExpand

TLDR
In solitary plant-dwelling stink bug species, success depends crucially on efficient mate location and recognition, mediated by signals transmitted through the plant, and accurate tuning of signal spectral properties with the plant's mechanical characteristics enables communication over several meter distances.

Vibrational directionality in the southern green stink bug, Nezara viridula (L.), is mediated by female song
TLDR
Vibrational directionality was elicited by artificial pure tones whose spectral and temporal parameters were similar to those of natural female song and by artificial sound, which caused males to walk, respond with the calling and courtship songs and to approach the source of the song with characteristic search behaviour at junctions between branches on the plants.

Temporal and spectral properties of the songs of the southern green stink bug Nezara viridula (L.) from Slovenia
TLDR
Substrate born songs of the southern green stinkbug Nezara viridula (L.) from Slovenia were recorded and analysed and the male rival song is characterised by prolonged pulses with typical frequency modulation. Expand

Mate location in the southern green stink bug,Nezara Viridula (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae), mediated through substrate-borne signals on ivy
TLDR
On plants where visual and airborne acoustic communication can be prevented by leaves, substrateborne vibrational signals perceived by receptors in legs would enhance the likelihood of mate location in N. viridula. Expand
Plants as transmission channels for insect vibrational songs
TLDR
The vibrational songs of several species of cydnid bugs and ‘small cicadas’ (leafhoppers and planthoppers) living on various types of plants are recorded by means of laser vibrometry and it is concluded that the signals recorded here are carried by Means of bending waves. Expand
Differences in vibratory sound communication between a Slovenian and an Australian population of Nezara viridula (L.) (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae)
TLDR
Sound communication, by means of substrate-borne vibrations, was recorded and analysed from a Slovenian and Australian population of the pentatomid landbug, Nezara viridula, finding the female calling song, which enables Slovenian male bugs to locate the female on a host plant, was significantly different.

Multimodal communication by the black-horned tree cricket, Oecanthus nigricornis (Walker) (Orthoptera: Gryllidae)
TLDR
Adult male tree crickets, Oecanthus nigricornis (Walker), employ acoustic, olfactory, and vibratory signals during mating and females appear to select mates on the males' ability to communicate these nutritional investment capabilities. Expand
