Abstract

•Sexual communication in Aphrodes is based on species-specific vibrational duet.•In duetting systems both partners contribute to sexual isolation.•Male calls composed of similar elements have a limited role in mate recognition.•Complex species-specific duet structure is crucial for reproductive isolation.•Males' contribution results also from inability to locate the heterospecific female.
