Cuticular hydrocarbons as chemotaxonomic characters for Nasutitermes corniger (Motschulsky) and N. ephratae (Holmgren) (Isoptera: Termitidae)



Cuticular hydrocarbons as chemotaxonomic characters for Nasutitermes corniger (Motschulsky) and N. ephratae (Holmgren) (Isoptera: Termitidae)



Annals of the Entomological Society of America, 813: 395-399



Forty-four cuticular hydrocarbon components from workers of the termites Nasutitermes corniger and N. ephratae from 3 localities in Panama were characterized by capillary gas chromatography-electron impact mass spectrometry. Both species contained qualitatively identical homologous series of n-alkanes; 2-, 3-, 11-, 13-, 14- and 15-methylalkanes; 11,15-, 12,16-, and 13,17-dimethylalkanes; and 11,15,19- and 13,17,21-trimethylalkanes. Both species also contained a single alkene, 9-hentriacontene.
