  • Abstract Female moths of Panaxia quadripunctaria PODA (Lepidoptera, Arctiidae), produce (Z,Z)-6,9-heneicosadiene (I) as the major and (Z,Z)-6,9-eicosadiene (II) as the minor component of a putative pheromone. Related compounds occur in trace amounts. The abdominal scent glands contain 5–10 μg of (I) and 50–100 ng of (II). Recordings of electroantennogram (EAG) responses to (I), (II), and to female glands are of equal amplitude in both sexes. Females are thus capable of pheromone autodetection… CONTINUE READING
