The lima bean pod borer Etiella zinckenella (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) is a severe agricultural pest attacking various leguminous crops in many areas of the world. Insecticidal control is ineffective because larvae feed inside the pods of legumes and so cannot readily be reached by sprays after egg hatch; therefore, monitoring by pheromone-baited traps would assist decisions on when to spray insecticides in a more effective and efficient manner. Four components have been found in the female… Expand

Antixenosis of soybean promising lines and the level of resistance against Etiella zinckenella, the pod borer
This study aimed to determine the antixenosis of soybean genotypes and the resistance to pod borer. 16 successful lines of soybean were used. Planting dates were arranged in a way to integrate theExpand
Resistance of Advanced Soybean Lines to Pod Borrer (Etiella zinckenella)
This study discovered nine soybean lines that is resistant to E. zinckenella, so that it can be beneficial for improving soybean resistance to this pest through releasing as a new resistant pod borer variety after tested further in potential yield and genetic x environment interaction trials.

Sex attractant pheromone of the limabean pod borer, Etiella zinckenella (Treitschke) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae), in Japan
The pheromone gland extract from Japanese E. zinckenella females is analyzed and the results suggest that Z9-14:OAc, Z11- 14:O Ac, and E9-12:Oac are essential components of the sex attractant phersomone of E. Zincknella in Japan. Expand
Optimization of blends of synthetic pheromone components for trapping male limabean pod borers (Etiella zinckenella Tr.) (Lepidoptera: Phycitidae): preliminary evidence on geographical differences.
None of the traps baited with combinations of the above compounds captured any moths in tests performed in Taiwan, suggesting possible geographical differences in pheromonal response of European and Eastern Asian populations of E. zinckenella. Expand
An Ecological Study of the Lima-Bean Pod Borer, Etiella zinckenella (Lepidoptera: Phycitidae), in Southern California
Ecological studies of the lima-bean pod borer, Etiella zinckenella (Treitschke), conducted in a coastal area of southern California during 1963 and 1964, revealed that 3–4 larval generations occurredExpand
Identification of four components from the female sex pheromone of the lima‐bean pod borer, Etiella zinckenella
The four component blend of the identified components in similar ratios as in the pheromone extract attracted significant numbers of male lima‐bean pod borers in both Hungary and Egypt. Expand
A comparison of the developmental and reproductive biology of two soybean pod borers, Etiella spp. in Indonesia
This study demonstrates distinct biological differences and reproductive isolation between the two Etiella spp. Expand
Sex pheromone of Etiella behrii, a pod borer of soybean in Indonesia: identification and field attraction
Four EAG‐active components were detected in GC‐EAG analyses of hexane extracts from virgin Etiella behrii (Zeller) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) females, and the role of pheromone blends in species discrimination between E. behRIi and the related E. zinckenella (Treitschke) is discussed. Expand
Moth Pheromone Genetics and Evolution
It is argued that there is no reason to dismiss species recognition as a possible cause of evolutionary change in moth sex pheromones and Mendelian genes controlling differences in mate choice and in the production of mate recognition signals have been found. Expand
Population variation and genetic control of pheromone communication systems in moths
Failure to demonstrate genes with pleiotropic effects on critical sender and receiver traits, suggests that reciprocal selection on genetically independent sender and Receiver loci is the more likely explanation for the generally observed coordination between pheromone production and response in moth populations.

Sex pheromones of moths
This research investigates the chemical nature of pheromones of male moths attracted to the females by physiologically highly active substances secreted by the latter. Expand
Sexual Communication with Pheromones
A critical event in sexual reproduction is location or recruitment of a mate. In a number of insect groups, the necessary movements in time and space are often mediated by pheromones. One sex mayExpand
