THE principal juvenile hormone (JH) of the cecropia silkmoth, as determined by the Tenebrio assay, is methyl-(+,−)-trans,trans,cis-10-epoxy-7-ethyl-3,11-dimethyl-2,6-tridecadienotate1. Synthetic cecropia JH and its mimics are physiologically active in insect orders such as the Lepidoptera, Coleoptera, Hemiptera, Orthoptera1–3, but less is known of corresponding effects in the Diptera4–7, and the Dipteran JH may differ from that of the Lepidoptera5. I report here a specific effect of synthetic… CONTINUE READING
