Adult male Neoclytus mucronatus mucronatus (F.) (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae: Cerambycinae) were observed to display behaviors identical to calling behaviors of the congener N. acuminatus acuminatus F., males of which produce an aggregation pheromone. Odors collected from male N. m. mucronatus contained one major male‐specific compound, identified as (R)‐3‐hydroxyhexan‐2‐one. Bioassays determined that both sexes were weakly attracted to racemic 3‐hydroxy‐2‐hexanone. Further field trials determined… Expand
Using Generic Pheromone Lures to Expedite Identification of Aggregation Pheromones for the Cerambycid Beetles Xylotrechus nauticus, Phymatodes lecontei, and Neoclytus modestus modestus
TLDR
Overall, the attraction of multiple species from different cerambycine tribes to this compound at a single field site supports the hypothesis that the hydroxyketone pheromone structural motif is highly conserved within this subfamily. Expand
Male-Produced Aggregation Pheromones of the Cerambycid Beetles Xylotrechus colonus and Sarosesthes fulminans
TLDR
Cross-attraction of beetles to pheromone blends of other species, and to individual phersomone components that are shared by two or more sympatric species, may facilitate location of larval hosts by species that compete for the same host species. Expand
7‐methylheptacosane is a major component of the contact sex pheromone of the cerambycid beetle Neoclytus acuminatus acuminatus
TLDR
It is suggested that 7Me‐C27 (7‐methylheptacosane) is the major component of the contact sex pheromone of N. a. Expand
The Role of Minor Pheromone Components in Segregating 14 Species of Longhorned Beetles (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) of the Subfamily Cerambycinae
TLDR
The antagonistic effects of minor compounds produced by heterospecific males suggest that these compounds serve to maintain prezygotic reproductive isolation among some species that share pheromone components. Expand
Interspecific Cross-Attraction between the South American Cerambycid Beetles Cotyclytus curvatus and Megacyllene acuta is Averted by Minor Pheromone Components
TLDR
Analysis of samples of beetle-produced volatiles revealed that males of C. curvatus sex-specifically produce only (R)-3-hydroxyhexan-2-one, whereas males of M. acuta produce the same compound, confirming that males produce aggregation-sex pheromones. Expand
Biosynthesis and Site of Production of Sex Pheromone Components of the Cerambycid Beetle, Hedypathes betulinus
TLDR
Pheromone was found predominantly in the prothorax of males, suggesting that this is the region of production of pheromones in this Insect, Brazil’s main green maté pest. Expand
Evidence for a female‐produced, long range pheromone of Anoplophora glabripennis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)
TLDR
Volatiles from female Asian longhorned beetle, Anoplophora glabripennis, were evaluated as candidate sex pheromone components and it was found that synthetic lures of the three aldehydes formulated in a ratio simulating that of virgin females attracted more beetles compared to controls, and that combinations of these aldeHydes, linalool oxide, and host kairomones captured more beetles than controls and captured significantly more males. Expand
Attraction of Anoplophora glabripennis to Male-Produced Pheromone and Plant Volatiles
TLDR
Evidence of the attractiveness of the Anoplophora glabripennis male-produced pheromone is provided and it is suggested that it has a role in mate-finding and the development of an efficient trap design and lure combination to monitor A. glabriennis infestations in the field is suggested. Expand
Identification of a Pheromone Component and a Critical Synergist for the Invasive Beetle Callidiellum rufipenne (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)
TLDR
The serendipitous discovery that adult C. rufipenne are attracted by the blend of ketone and pyrrole provides a badly needed method for monitoring its ongoing range expansion within North America, and for detecting new introductions in other parts of the world. Expand
Blending Synthetic Pheromones of Cerambycid Beetles to Develop Trap Lures That Simultaneously Attract Multiple Species
TLDR
The results suggest that different types of cerambycid pheromones can be combined to create effective multispecies lures for use in surveillance programs that target exotic ceram bycid species. Expand

Male-Produced Aggregation Pheromone of the Cerambycid Beetle Neoclytus acuminatus acuminatus
TLDR
Females of the cerambycidCurius dentatus Newman were attracted to traps baited with the four component blend, suggesting that a male-produced sex pheromone for this species may contain (2R,3S)- hexanediol and/or (2S,3R)-hexanediol. Expand
Contact Pheromones as Mate Recognition Cues of Four Species of Longhorned Beetles (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)
TLDR
It is found that nonpolar compounds on the cuticle of females are essential for mate recognition in all four species and are further evidence of the critical role of contact pheromones in mating systems of longhorned beetles. Expand
Predicted taxonomic patterns in pheromone production by longhorned beetles
TLDR
The taxonomic distribution of gland pores within the Cerambycinae is assessed by examining males and females of 65 species in 24 tribes using scanning electron microscopy to support the initial assumption that gland pores are associated with the production of pheromones by males. Expand
ROLE OF HOST PLANT VOLATILES IN MATE LOCATION FOR THREE SPECIES OF LONGHORNED BEETLES
TLDR
Evaluating the first behavioral stage of mate location behavior for the same three species finds both males and females responded to volatiles emanating from hickory logs in Y-tube olfactometer bioassays. Expand

TLDR
Electroantennograms were recorded from the grape borer in response to serial dilutions of male sex pheromone components, ( 2S,3S)-octanediol and (2S)-hydroxy-3-octanone, and to 100 μg of their optical isomers and host plant substances. Expand

TLDR
Pheromone-based trapping of females does not seem to be a viable strategy for managing CWSB populations in China because of its complex mating behaviour and lack of direct flight towards pheromones sources. Expand
