It is in effect a modified heckelphone, with a slightly smaller bore and range down to low F. The addition of the 4 lowest semitones allows it to cover the full intended range of the heckelphone part of Richard Strauss' Eine Alpensinfonie, which descends beyond that instrument's lowest note. Its name is derived from the inventor's name (lupus is the Latin word for wolf).
