Hearing in tiger beetles (Cicindelidae)



Hearing in tiger beetles (Cicindelidae)



Physiological Entomology 134: 447-452



Tympanic hearing organs (ears) are reported for several species of Cicindelidae. The paired ears are positioned bilaterally on the first abdominal tergum and consist of cavities covered by thin tympana. When the beetles are not flying, the elytra covers the ears and reduces their sensitivity to sound. However, when the beetles are flying, the exposed ears are capable of detecting ultrasonic pulses.
