Multimodal communication by the black-horned tree cricket, Oecanthus nigricornis (Walker) (Orthoptera: Gryllidae)
Canadian Journal of Zoology 5810: 1861-1868
It was shown in laboratory and field studies in Ontario that males of the cricket Oecanthus nigricornis Wlk. employ acoustic, olfactory and vibratory signals during mating. Females were significantly attracted to the conspecific courtship song and to the conspecific male scent. Males in normal, waxed-over metanotal gland, and non-singer groups had 63, 39 and 0% copulation success, respectively.
