Visual and Acoustical Social Displays by the Grasshopper Arphia Conspersa (Orthoptera: Acrididae) test


Many species of the Oedipodinae (band-wing grasshoppers) exhibit strikingly diverse social interactions invoking visual and acoustical communication between the sexes and between individuals of the same sex (Otte, 1968, 1969).The present paper is an account of the communication system of Arphia conspersa and will serve as an introduction to quantitative and experimental analyses of specific aspects of the behavior of this and other species.
