A study of the sex pheromone of the leek moth, Acrolepiopsis assectella (Lepidoptera: Acrolepiidae)


, : A study of the sex pheromone of the leek moth, Acrolepiopsis assectella (Lepidoptera: Acrolepiidae). Entomologia Experimentalis et Applicata 29(2): 198-208

The main component of the sex pheromone secretion produced by virgin females of Acrolepiopsis assectella (Zell.) was identified as (Z)-11-hexadecenal (Z11HDal) by gas chromatographic analysis and mass spectrometry, electroantennogram (EAG) tests, and behavioural assays. Z11HDal elicited the highest EAG response of all C12 to C18 acetates, aldehydes, formates and alcohols tested, and induced a typical sequence of male sexual behavioural responses in olfactometer tests.
