Identification of iso-butyric acid in secretion from Brindley's scent glands in Rhodnius prolixus (Heteroptera: Reduviidae)


Identification of iso-butyric acid in secretion from Brindley's scent glands in Rhodnius prolixus (Heteroptera: Reduviidae)



Annals of the Entomological Society of America 65(5): 1240-1241

DOI: 10.1093/aesa/65.5.1240

Scent glands located dorso-laterally at the junction of the thorax and abdomen in Rhodnius prolixus Stal emit a sharp, rancid odour, and the secretion was identified as isobutyric acid. It would seem that the volatile secretion is likely to be a defence against predators.
