ABSTRACT. Oscillograms and descriptions of signals of 12 species of Gomphocerinae grasshoppers (Orthoptera: Acrididae) from 12 localities in Southern Siberia and the Russian Far East are presented. Within a subspecies or monotypical species no differences in temporal pattern of signals and acoustic behaviour between different populations were revealed. Songs of different subspecies sometimes differ clearly from each other, however. Signals of Aeropedellus variegatus minutus Mistshenko, 1951 are described for the first time, taxonomic status of this form is discussed.
