ABSTRACT. Calling signals of three species of Delphacidae (Kelisiinae and Delphacinae), 13 species of Cixiidae, one species of Meenoplidae, two species of Dictyopharidae (Dictyopharinae and Orgeriinae), and two species of Caliscelidae from the Asian part of Palaearctic are described and illustrated by oscillograms and sonograms. Species of Cixiidae, Meenoplidae, and Dictyopharidae produce simple calling signals consisting of uniform short pulses; in Delphacidae and Caliscelidae signals have much more complex temporal and frequency pattern. Signal recordings of Cixius sibiricus, C. granulatus, and Reptalus narynensis were made far outside their known ranges; for these species drawings of male genitalia of specimens from new localities are given.
