Abstract

The sound and associated stridulatory structures in males have been re-examined in Micronecta batilla following a recent explanation of underwater stridulation for this species (King 1976). Observations are supported by scanning EM and analyses of the sound. A different stridulatory system has been seen to function, and its sound output has been reconciled with its structure and the presence of wear patterns on the pars stridens.
