Abstract(R)-6-Ethyl-2-methyl-2,3-dihydro-4H-pyran-4-one, (1R,3S,5R)-3-ethyl-1,8-dimethyl-2,9-dioxabicyclo[3.3. 1]non-7-ene, and (1R,3S,5R)-3-ethyl-1,8-dimethyl-2,9-dioxabicyclo[3.3.1]non-7-en-6-one represent the main components in the male pheromone of the swift moth,Hepialus hecta. The amounts of the three components were 40, 5, and 5 μg per male, respectively. Structure elucidation of the compounds was based on spectroscopic data as compared to synthetic reference samples. The absolute… 
Novel Components of the Sex Pheromones Produced by Emerald Moths: Identification, Synthesis, and Field Evaluation
TLDR
The field evaluation of the synthetic polyenes in a mixed forest of Tokyo revealed the following new male attractants for emerald moths: Idiochlora ussuriaria by a C17 6,9,12-triene and Jodis lactearia by a 2,3,6,9-tetraene, indicating the characteristic chemical structures of Geometrinae pheromones.
Copulation and male calling in the swift ( Lepidoptera : Hepialidae ) moth , Endoclita excrescens ( Butler )
Actual copulations of the swift moth, Endoclita excrescens (Butler), were recorded both in field observations at fakasaki in Kukizaki Town, Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan and in a large cage at the
Copulation and male calling in the swift moth, Endoclita excrescens (Butler) (Lepidoptera: Hepialidae)
TLDR
Preliminary experiments suggest that females are attracted to the flying males by visual cues from a long distance and the male scent from a short distance in the final encounter while the male flight pattern including the swinglike pendulum flight may have a “calling” function in long-range female attraction.
Antipredator activity and endogenous biosynthesis of defensive secretion in larval and pupal Delphastus catalinae (Horn) (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
Experiments suggest that the wide use of alkaloids by more derived coccinellids may have arisen after their divergence from the more basal Microweisinae, a group for which chemical defenses have not been previously investigated.
Evidence for Long-range Mate Attraction Mediated By a Male-produced Sex Pheromone in Paysandisia archon (Lepidoptera: Castniidae)
TLDR
Olfactory responses of P. archon to conspecifics, with and without visual cues, in a wind tunnel and in the field showed that the virgin males exhibiting the scratching behavior, whether they were visible or not, attracted virgin females at long range.
Antipredator activity and endogenous biosynthesis of defensive secretion in larval and pupal Delphastus catalinae (Horn) (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
Experiments with D. catalinae larvae fed isotopically labeled glucose showed 13C-incorporation into both categories of compounds within the pupal secretion, demonstrating that these antipredator compounds, which differ from the typical nitrogenous defensive molecules of coccinellids, are biosynthesized endogenously.
Complex Sexual Deception in an Orchid Is Achieved by Co-opting Two Independent Biosynthetic Pathways for Pollinator Attraction
TLDR
It is reported that (S)-β-citronellol and 2-hydroxy-6-methylacetophenone, two biosynthetically distinct compounds, are the active semiochemicals in Caladenia plicata, which is pollinated by male Zeleboria sp.
Pheromones of Terrestrial Invertebrates
TLDR
This chapter covers the literature on pheromones of arthropods published between 1998 and 2009 and also shows selected structures of semiochemicals that have been identified earlier and groups them according to their carbon skeletons and possible biosyntheses.
100 years of pheromone research
TLDR
It is supposed that the whole system is of monophyletic origin: female lure glands, male receptor organs, and perhaps even the central nervous machinery are homologous.
The flexible lek: Phymatopus hecta the gold swift demonstrates the evolution of leking and male swarming via a hotspot (Lepidoptera: Hepialidae)
TLDR
The whole supports a model for the evolution of resource-based leks which commence with a concentration of females on a hotspot, leading to a Concentration of males; and then an escalating process of sexual selection as males become increasingly attractive over a distance to females, and females use the males as a way of locating the resource.

Isolation and structure of hepialone; principal component from male sex scales of Hepialus californicus (Lepidoptera)
Abstract Hepialone, a new sex-pheromonal component produced by the male moth, Hepialus californicus B., was isolated from their hairpencils. The structure was determined to be (2 R
Sex pheromones of two Asian moths (Creatonotos transiens, C. gangis; Lepidoptera--Arctiidae): behavior, morphology, chemistry and electrophysiology.
TLDR
Two sympatric species of Asian arctiid moths use a sequential, dual luring and mating system and only the male antennae possess specialized receptor cells for the female attractants; other antennal cells of both sexes respond to the male pheromone.

Sex roles in the ghost moth Hepialus humuli (L.) and a review of mating in the Hepialidae (Lepidoptera)
TLDR
All studied hepialids which have male brush organs exhibit similar flight and mating behaviour: males hover, sit or loop back and forth on the spot in leks; females fly into male aggregations and mate there (although some published observations suggest otherwise).
