Host odour perception in three phytophagous Diptera - a comparative study

Host odour perception in three phytophagous Diptera - a comparative study

Proceedings of the 5th International Symposium on Insect Plant Relationships, Wageningen, the Netherlands, 1-4 March 1982: 95-105

Laboratory studies were carried out in Switzerland on the perception of food-plant odours in the carrot pest Psila rosae (F.), the brassica pest Delia radicum (L.) (brassicae (Wied.)) and the onion pest D. antiqua (Mg.). A high degree of olfactory specificity was observed by means of the electroantennogram (EAG) in P. rosae and D. antiqua for the food-plant-related volatiles trans-asarone ((E)-1,2,4-trimethoxy-5-(1-propenyl)benzene) and dipropyl disulfide, respectively.
