Electrophysiological studies on the antennal olfactory cells of the onion fly hylemya antiqua meigen diptera anthomyiidae

, : Electrophysiological studies on the antennal olfactory cells of the onion fly hylemya antiqua meigen diptera anthomyiidae. Applied Entomology & Zoology 22(4): 417-423

Electrophysiological studies were conducted on the antennal olfactory cells of the female onion fly, Hylemya antiqua Meigen. From the surface of the funicle, 2 types of cells were found: one type which responds well to di-n-propyldisulfide but little to ethyl acetate (DNPD-cell), and the other responding to ethyl acetate but not to di-n-propyldisulfide (EA-cell). The DNPD-cell responded to onion odour as well. Among the di-n-alkyldisulfides of alkyl chain length 1 to 5, the DNPD-cell showed high specificity to di-n-propyldisulfide. Although both types responded to n-alcohols, the DNPD-cell was more responsive to heptanol and octanol, while the EA-cell to pentanol and hexanol. Neither type responded to 2-phenylethanol or n-valeric acid. The sensillum that contains these cells appears to be basiconic sensillum.

Anastomoses also occur in various...
