Rare cricket family sheds light on extinct Jurassic species' acoustics

World-first research into the sole remaining living insects of an ancient super-family of crickets has revealed vibrating areas on seemingly unspecialized wings which create sound, representing a transitional stage between those of their fossilized ancestors and the adapted form of modern bush-crickets. The findings will help evolutionary biologists and entomologists better understand the acoustic world the now extinct species once lived.
