Calling signals of seven species and four recently discoverd taxa of the genus Ribautodelphax were recorded and analysed. Clear differences in calling variables were found between all Ribautodelphax studied which suggests that all taxa investigated are true species. Interspecific differences were distinct in males as well as females. Variation in calling variables was larger between individuals than within individuals. Interpopulation variation in calling variables of both males and females is described for some species. Aberrant acoustic signals of one population, provisionally included in one of the new taxa, suggested that another new species might be involved.
