Contact chemoreception of host plant specific chemicals in larvae of variousYponomeuta species (Lepidoptera)

  title={Contact chemoreception of host plant specific chemicals in larvae of variousYponomeuta species (Lepidoptera)},
  author={Wim van Drongelen},
  journal={Journal of comparative physiology},
Gustatory sensitivity of larvae belonging to nine differentYponomeuta species was studied. A conspicuous behavioural difference between these closely related species is represented in their host plant preferences. Electrophysiological and morphological examination of the anteriorly-located sensilla revealed that a restricted number of contact chemoreceptors are present. A tip recording technique was used to record gustatory responses of neurones in the lateral and medial styloconic sensilla… CONTINUE READING
