Data from: Masking of an auditory behaviour reveals how male mosquitoes use distortion to detect females

Patricio M. V. Simões, Robert Ingham, Gabriella Gibson & Ian J. Russell
The mating behaviour of many mosquito species is mediated essentially by sound: males follow and mate with a female mid-flight by detecting and tracking the whine of her flight-tones. The stereotypical rapid frequency modulation (RFM) male behaviour, initiated in response to the detection of the female's flight-tones, has provided a means of investigating these auditory mechanisms while males are free-flying. Mosquitoes hear with their antennae, which vibrate to near-field acoustic excitation. The antennae generate nonlinear...
