In this study, the male calling songs of sixteen species belonging to the Tettigoniidae family distributed in Hakkari were recorded in the field studies and bioacoustic analyses were performed. The bioacoustic analysis of two genera (Kurdia and Novadrymadusa) documented first time with present study and in total six species (Bradyporus (Callimenus) latipes, Isophya hakkarica, Kurdia uvarovi, Novadrymadusa karabagi, Psorodonotus hakkari, and Squamiana supericola) were presented first time. The bioacoustic analyses of seven species (Conocephalus (Anisoptera) fuscus, Pezodrymadusa indivisa, Polysarcus zacharovi, Tettigonia armeniaca, Tettigonia caudata, Tettigonia viridissima, and Uvarovistia satunini) were examined for the first time from Hakkari populations. In addition, in this study, the bioacoustic analyses of three species (Apholidoptera kurda, Saga hakkarica, and Uvarovistia zebra) distributed in Hakkari were re-evaluated in this study on new individuals. As a result of the findings, it has been determined that the male calling song of sixteen species belonging to the Tettigoniidae family are species-specific, have a simple calling song type, and morphological species hypotheses are also supported by bioacoustic data (male calling song).
