Chemical and Chromatic Bases for Preferential Visiting By the Cabbage Butterfly, Pieris rapae, to Rape Flowers
Scent and coloration of corolla were examined as floral attributes responsible for preferential visiting by the cabbage butterfly, Pieris rapae, to rape flower, Brassica rapa. Floral volatileExpand

Identification of Floral Volatiles From Ligustrum japonicum that Stimulate Flower-Visiting by Cabbage Butterfly, Pieris rapae
Floral scent compounds of Ligustrum japonicum that affect the foraging behavior of Pieris rapae adults were examined by means of chemical analyses, electroantennogram (EAG) responses, and behavioralExpand

Chemical basis of differential oviposition by lepidopterous insects
Phytochemical mediators serving as attractants, repellents, stimulants, or deterrents in oviposition behavior of moths and butterflies are reviewed in regard to the chemical mechanism of hostExpand

Priority of color over scent during flower visitation by adult Vanessa indica butterflies
Most flower visitors innately prefer a particular color and scent, and use them as cues for flower recognition and selection. However, in most cases, since color and scent serve as a combined signal,Expand

Feeding responses of adult butterflies, Nymphalis xanthomelas, Kaniska canace and Vanessa indica, to components in tree sap and rotting fruits: synergistic effects of ethanol and acetic acid on sugar
Exuded tree sap and rotting fruits are important feeding sources for adults of many butterfly species. However, the chemical composition of such rotting foods and the effects of these constituents onExpand

Identification of feeding attractants in oak sap for adults of two nymphalid butterflies, Kaniska canace and Vanessa indica
The active compounds of oak‐sap odour in attracting adults of two butterflies, Kaniska canace (L.) and Vanessa indica (Herbst) (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae), were identified by chemical analyses,Expand

Defensive potential of components of the larval osmeterial secretion of papilionid butterflies against ants
ABSTRACT. Toxicity and repellency of components of larval osmeterial secretions of the Papilionidae to the ants Lasius niger and Crematogaster matsumurai were evaluated in the laboratory and in theExpand

Male sex pheromone of a giant danaine butterfly,Idea leuconoe
Males of a giant danaine butterfly,Idea leuconoe, display hairpencils during courtship. The females were visually attracted to and olfactorily arrested by an artificial butterfly model to which maleExpand

Behavioral and electroantennographic responsiveness of adult butterflies of six nymphalid species to food-derived volatiles
While adults of most species of butterflies visit flowers for food (nectar), those of certain species can feed on rotting food (e.g., exuded tree sap and rotting fruits). These food sourcesExpand
