C. cerdaniensis   calling song

Because C. cantilatrix   sp. nov. and C. cerdaniensis   calling songs have been previously mistaken, we here provide a description of a typical sound emission produced by C. cerdaniensis   male. Echemes emitted by C. cerdaniensis   basically follow the same pattern as those produced by C. cantilatrix   sp. nov. However, as stated in the original description ( Puissant & Boulard, 2000), a typical calling sequence of C. cerdaniensis   includes three phrases differing in echeme production rate ( Figure 6 A View FIGURE 6 A – E ). All temporal parameters (ED, FPD, SPD, IED) covary ( Figure 6 B View FIGURE 6 A – E ). The first phrase is made of short echemes produced at high rate (short ED, short FPD, short SPD, short IED, Figure 6 C View FIGURE 6 A – E ). Then, during the second phrase, echemes lengthen and the gaps between them also increase (long ED, long FPD, long SPD, long IED, Figure 6 D View FIGURE 6 A – E ). The third phrase is characterised by the emission of short echemes at a very high rate (short ED, short FPD, short, SPD, very short IED, Figure 6 E View FIGURE 6 A – E ).

In the frequency domain, most of the spectral energy is between 12 kHz and 19 kHz, but the dominant frequency is around 15 kHz, higher than that of C. cantilatrix   sp. nov. ( Table 1 View TABLE 1 , Figure 7 View FIGURE 7 A – C ).
