Autodetection and chemistry of female and male pheromone in both sexes of the tiger moth Panaxia quadripunctaria
TLDR
Females of Panaxia quadripunctaria PODA are capable of pheromone autodetection in contrast to the majority of moths where females are considered to be anosmic for their own attractant.
Identification and Field Evaluation of a Sex Pheromone of the European Pine Moth
Abstract The principal component of the female sex pheromone of the European pine moth Dendrolimus pini L. (Lasiocampidae) was identified as (Z ,E)-5 ,7-dodecadienal by capillary gas chromatography,
Notizen: Specificity of Synthetic Sex-Attractants in Zygaena Moths
Abstract Species-specific sex-attractants are reported for western Palearctic Zygaena moths of the carniolica, viciae, filipendulae, and purpuralis species groups. The attractants were established by
(Z,Z)-7,9-Dodecadienyl acetate, sex pheromone ofEpinotia tedella clerck (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)
TLDR
(Z,Z)-7,9-dodecadienyl acetate as a single chemical proved highly attractive to male E. tedella over a range of lure doses, and in binary combinations with the primary pheromone, these compounds, and also the (E,Z) stereoisomeric acetate, reduced captures.
Intraspecific variation and interspecific differences in sex pheromones of sibling species inCtenopseustis obliquana complex
TLDR
It is found that type I males are attracted to type I females when offered a choice between type I and type II females in a field cage test and that type II males similarly prefertype II females.
(Z)-3- and (Z)-5-Decenyl Acetates, Sex-Attractant Components for Male Eustrotia uncula Cl. (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
TLDR
This is the first report of a Δ3-alkenyl compound being involved in sexual attraction in the Noctuidae, and two species of Euxoa also responded to Z3-10: Ac as a single compound or lure component, respectively.
A Sex Attractant for the Green Budworm Moth, Hedya nubiferana
TLDR
The two major components of the female pheromone blend of Hedya nubiferana have been identified as (E, E)-8,10-dodecadienyl acetate and (Z), which acts on a specialist receptor type in olfactory hair sensilla of the male antenna.
Pheromone differences between sibling taxaDiachrysia chrysitis (linnaeus, 1758) andD. tutti (Kostrowicki, 1961) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
TLDR
Female pheromone production and male electroantennographic (EAG) response in Diachrysia families raised in the laboratory from field-collected gravid females is investigated, indicating that cross attraction may take place between the two taxa under natural conditions.
2-Phenylethanol, a presumed sexual stimulant produced by the male cabbage looper moth,Trichoplusia ni
TLDR
A sex pheromone produced by male cabbage looper moths, Trichoplusia ni, has been isolated from the genital scent brushes and identified as 2-phenylethanol, which represents the first identification of a genital scent brush phersomone in the family Noctuidae, and of a male pheromegala in the subfamily Plusiinae.
Sex pheromones of Spilonota ocellana and Spilonota laricana
TLDR
Male moths of both species were best attracted to a blend of 10:1 to 1:1 Z8‐14Ac:Z8‐ 14OH, indicating that mating barriers other than sex pheromones exist between sympatric populations.
