(5R,7R)-5-Methylheptadecan-7-ol: a novel sex pheromone component produced by a female lichen moth, Miltochrista calamina, in the family Arctiidae
A methyl-branched heptadecanol was found in the pheromone gland extract of a female lichen moth, Miltochrista calamina (Arctiidae, Lithosiinae). GC–MS analyses of the alcohol and a hydrocarbonExpand
