Chiral pheromone and reproductive isolation between the gypsy- and nun moth



Chiral pheromone and reproductive isolation between the gypsy- and nun moth



Naturwissenschaften 70(9): 466-467



A laboratory study was carried out in the German Federal Republic in which recordings were made from single olfactory cells in antennal hairs of males of Lymantria dispar (L.) and L. monacha (L.) during stimulation with gland extracts and synthetic enantiomers of disparlure. The hexane extracts of the L. dispar glands stimulated almost exclusively the receptor cells specialised for (+)-disparlure, while both cells were stimulated simultaneously by the gland extracts of females of L. monacha.
