The sexual behaviour of the marbled newt (Triturus marmoratus) is similar to that of the crested newt (T. cristatus), but differs from it by a different temporal patterning of a number of display behaviours. Furthermore there are differences in frequency/intensity of certain displays. 'Rocking' is virtually absent in the marbled newt behaviour, whereas in the crested newt this is the most developed form of courtship movement. The marbled newt shows a less extreme 'catbuckle' display than the crested newt and a higher frequency of 'tail-lashes'. The courtship display of the marbled newt is then described in more detail and compared with that of T. cristatus and T. vittatus.
