The 7–8th ventral abdominal gland secretions from 6 adult male leaf-footed bugs,Leptoglossus spp., and a related species,Euthochtha galeator, were chemically analyzed by GC-MS. Of the 11 volatile compounds identified, all but one of the compounds (n-octanol) were aromatic, including compounds with the familiar odors of cherries, vanilla, cinnamon, and roses. The preponderance of aromatics in the adult male ventral abdominal gland secretions contrasts sharply with the aliphatic compounds which… 
Volatile male-specific natural products of a coreid bug (Hemiptera: Heteroptera)
TLDR
The large coreid bug,Pachylis laticornis (Hemiptera: Coreidae), feeds on several mimosaceous trees in Guanacaste, Costa Rica, and possesses a ventral abdominal gland, opening midventrally in the 7–8th abdominal intersegmental membrane, that releases volatile compounds.
Male-specific volatiles from nearctic and Australasian true bugs (Heteroptera: Coreidae and Alydidae)
TLDR
Males of all the species studied emit volatile blends that are probably pheromones, but sexual communication in these insects evolved differently, so (E)-nerolidol from these coreids is environmentally unique because of its chirality.
The Metathoracic Scent Gland of the Leaf-Footed Bug, Leptoglossus zonatus
Abstract The metathoracic scent gland of 25-day-old adults of both sexes of the leaf-footed bug, Leptoglossus zonatus (Dallas) (Heteroptera: Coreidae), are described based on optical microscopy
2-Phenylethanol: Context-Specific Aggregation or Sex-Attractant Pheromone of Boisea rubrolineata (Heteroptera: Rhopalidae)
TLDR
Results of chemical analyses and laboratory bioassays suggest that aggregation and sexual communication in B. rubrolineata are mediated by 2-phenylethanol, a pheromone that originates from the feces of seed-feeding females and males and the ventral abdominal gland of males that emerge from overwintering diapause.
Fruitspotting bugs, Amblypelta nitida Stål and A. lutescens lutescens Distant (Hemiptera: Coreidae): a review of the potential for integrated management practices
TLDR
A synthetic lure based on some of the volatile compounds emitted by male A. lutescens has recently been developed and incorporated into a prototype trap, which offers a promising new approach to population monitoring and the development of integrated management strategies for this species.
Leaf-Footed Bugs (Coreidae)
TLDR
The family Coreidae is distributed worldwide, but these phytophagous bugs are most abundant in the tropics and subtropics, and all of the subfamilies and 16 tribes are represented.
Comparative Analysis of Volatile Defensive Secretions of Three Species of Pyrrhocoridae (Insecta: Heteroptera) by Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometric Method
TLDR
A new method of non-lethal sampling with subsequent separation using gas chromatography with mass spectrometric detection was proposed for analysis of these volatile defensive secretions of true bugs, showing the irritation of bugs by pressing them with a plunger of syringe was shown to be the most suitable.
ATTRACTION OF ADULT COSTELYTRA ZEALANDICA TO 4-HYDROXYBENZALDEHYDE
Field experiments were conducted to determine the attraction of adult Costelytra zealandica (White) to phenol, the sex pheromone for this species, and the phenolic aldehyde, 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde,
Presence of uradenia in male adults of the genus Dismegistus (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Parastrachiidae)
TLDR
It is reported here the first instance of uradenia in a pentatomoid genus, the African Dismegistus Amyot & Serville, 1843 (Parastrachiidae), which only the male adult possesses uradenIA located on the intersegmental membrane of segments VIII–IX.
Genetic Variability of Two Leaffooted Bugs, Leptoglossus clypealis and Leptoglossus zonatus (Hemiptera: Coreidae) in the Central Valley of California
TLDR
Surveying the different species of Leptoglossus present in almond, pistachio, and pomegranate orchards in the Central Valley of California found one species consisted of one species, which suggests it moves between almonds and pistachios during the growing season.

Male specific natural products in the bug, Leptoglossus phyllopus: Chemistry and possible function
TLDR
Using a GC-MS system, the following aromatic volatiles were identified in the abdominal gland secretion from males of the leaf footed bug, Leptoglossus phyllopus: guaiacol, benzyl alcohol, syringaldehyde, methyl p-hydroxybenzoate, acetosyringone, and vanillin.
Pentatomid natural products
TLDR
The composition of the previously unanalyzed secretions from the adult III-IV dorsal abdominal glands is compared and contrasted to that of secretionsfrom the metathoricic gland, and the role of coexisting exocrine glands in adult Heteroptera is discussed.
The adult scent glands and scent of nine bugs of the superfamily Coreoidea
TLDR
The characteristic, ester odour of these coreoid bugs is quite unlike that of pentatomid bugs examined so far and the two groups do not possess a single component in common; nevertheless there are interesting analogies between the scent components of both groups.
Natural Products of Abdominal and Metathoracic Scent Glands of Coreoid Bugs
TLDR
The composition of metathoracic scents corroborating morphologically microbased taxonomy as low as the generic level, but not at the species level, indicated ester and aldehyde components are present at higher concentrations in young bugs than old bugs.
Secretions from the Lateral Scent Glands of the Green Vegetable Bug, Nezara viridula
GREAT interest attaches to the division of biosynthetic activities between the different types of cell in a gland complex and to the mechanisms whereby toxic secretions are prevented from causing
Response of the Female Southern Green Stink Bug and Its Parasite, Trichopoda pennipes, to Male Stink Bug Pheromones
Data are presented to support the theory that male Nezara viridula (L.) produce a pheromone that is highly attractive to females of the same species and to the tachinid parasite Trichopoda pennipes
Physiological Effects on Sex Pheromone Communication in the Southern Green Stink Bug, Nezara viridula
TLDR
The influence of selected physiological conditions on sex pheromone communication in the southern green stink bug, Nezara viridula, was investigated and males apparently lost their attractiveness for a period of 5–6 days after mating, but thereafter became very attractive to sexually mature virgin females.
A comparative study of the chemical defensive system of tenebrionid beetles: Chemistry of the secretions
TLDR
The chemical compositions of the defensive secretions of 147 species of tenebrionid beetles from 55 genera and 16 tribes were analysed by gas-liquid chromatography on three different stationary phases and many groups not distinguished by unique compounds still show characteristic combinations and ratios of compounds.
The defensive secretions of Polyzosteria and related cockroaches
TLDR
The chemical composition of the defensive secretion confirms the existing classification systems in the Blattodea although there are some inconsistencies.
Acid Content of Scent Fluid from Acanthocephala femorata, A. declivis, and A. granulosa (Hemiptera: Coreidae)
TLDR
The major component of the defensive scent fluids from the true bugs Acanthocephala femorata, A. granulosa, and A. declivis has been found to be trans-2-hexenal, and an acid, present in quantities small enough to elude detection by some procedures, also is found in the fluid of all 3 species.
