Both sexes of Grapholita molesta, a key pest of stone fruits, are able to detect host-plant volatiles and the sex pheromone emitted by females, and to modify their behaviour accordingly. How olfactory information is processed in the central nervous system is unknown. Intracellular recordings and stainings were used to characterize antennal lobe (AL) neuron responses to single pheromone components, a behaviourally active blend of five peach volatiles and a pear-fruit ester. AL neurons with… CONTINUE READING
