Echolocation keys Main phonic-group selection (if you DO have harmonics recorded) 1a. FME located in the first harmonic. 2a. Pulses with at least one CF section. 2b. Mostly QCF (at least in one of the pulse types, when call sequences include alternating pulse types); sometimes with small FM cues. 2c. FM with final QCF part (very variable proportions of each type). 1b. FME located in any other harmonic. 2a. Pulses with at least one CF section. 2b. Mostly QCF, sometimes with small FM cues. 2c. FM with final QCF part with FME > 110kHz. 2d. Only FM (extremely modulated pulses). 3a. FME: 130-170kHz. 3b. FME: 100-120kHz; sometimes only first harmonic present (60kHz)

* Be aware of the great variability found in this group.
