Green lacewing phylogeny, based on three nuclear genes (Chrysopidae, Neuroptera)
Abstract Systematic relationships among higher taxa within Chrysopidae, a large and agriculturally significant neuropteran family, are poorly understood. A molecular phylogenetic survey ofExpand
Complete mitochondrial genomes of two green lacewings, Chrysoperla nipponensis (Okamoto, 1914) and Apochrysa matsumurae Okamoto, 1912 (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae)
We describe the complete mitochondrial genomes of the green lacewing species Chrysoperla nipponensis (Okamoto, 1914) and Apochrysa matsumurae Okamoto 1912 (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae). The genomes wereExpand
Reexamination of the Female Sex Pheromone of the Sweet Potato Vine Borer Moth: Identification and Field Evaluation of a Tricosatriene
The sweet potato vine borer moth, Omphisa anastomosalis (Pyraloidea: Crambidae), is a serious pest in tropical and subtropical Asia-Pacific regions. In previous work using a population from Okinawa,Expand
Synthesis and Characterization of 2,13- and 3,13-Octadecadienals for the Identification of the Sex Pheromone Secreted by a Clearwing Moth
In addition to 2,13- and 3,13-octadecadien-1-ols and their acetates, aldehyde analogs have been identified from lepidopteran species in the family Sesiidae. To establish a reliable analytical methodExpand
Larval Cannibalism and Intraguild Predation Between the Introduced Green Lacewing, Chrysoperla carnea, and the Indigenous Trash-Carrying Green Lacewing, Mallada desjardinsi (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae),
Abstract To study the potential competitive risk of the introduced Chrysoperla carnea (Stephens) on the indigenous trash-carrying chrysopid Mallada desjardinsi (Navás), we studied the occurrence ofExpand
Sex Pheromone of the Persimmon Fruit Moth, Stathmopoda masinissa: Identification and Laboratory Bioassay of (4E, 6Z)-4,6-Hexadecadien-1-ol Derivatives
Three electroantennogram (EAG)-active components were detected by gas chromatography coupled to an electroantennographic detector (GC–EAD) analysis of a hexane extract of the pheromone glands of theExpand
Identification of the sex pheromone secreted by Synanthedon tenuis (Lepidoptera: Sesiidae)
The Japanese persimmon treeborer, Synanthedon tenuis (Butler) (Lepidoptera: Sesiidae), is a harmful pest of persimmon trees (Diospyros spp.). Because males of this species are known to be attractedExpand
Mitochondrial Phylogeny of Cryptic Species of the Lacewing Chrysoperla nipponensis (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae) in Japan
Abstract We surveyed a 1,033-bp fragment of the cytochrome oxidase subunit I (COI) sequence to look for a useful diagnostic marker for discrimination between the Japanese cryptic species ChrysoperlaExpand
Identification of the Sex Pheromone Secreted by a Nettle Moth, Monema flavescens, Using Gas Chromatography/Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy
The nettle moth Monema flavescens (Limacodidae) is a defoliator of fruit trees, such as Chinese plum and persimmon. The larvae of this species have spines containing a poison that causes seriousExpand
Hybrid Sex Pheromones of the Hibiscus Flower-bud Borer, Rehimena surusalis
The sex pheromone of the hibiscus flower borer Rehimena surusalis (Walker) (Lepidoptera: Crambidae) was analyzed by gas chromatography with electroantennographic detection (GC-EAD) and GC-massExpand
