Acoustic communication is important in many insect groups. This overview covers the mechanisms and diversity of acoustic behavior found in psyllids. Several recent studies reveal a greater diversity of sounds than may have been expected from a simple stridulatory sound making system. The potential role of acoustics in psyllid mating and speciation is illustrated with data from allopatric versus sympatric groups and morphologically cryptic species.
