The chemosensory behavior of lithobius forficatus myriapoda chilopoda 2. bioassay and chemistry of the coxal pheromone

The chemosensory behavior of lithobius forficatus myriapoda chilopoda 2. bioassay and chemistry of the coxal pheromone

Journal of Zoology (London) 215(3): 523-536

The common brown centipede, Lithobius forficatus (L.), releases a sex-specific pheromone which emanates from distinctive cuticular openings on the coxae of the hind legs.sbd.the coxal pores (Littlewood and Blower, 1987). The pheromone can be isolated from tissue extracts of the coxal organs (surrounding the coxal pores) and from substrata which have been 'marked' by male or female L. forficatus and presented to centipedes in the form of a behavioural bio-assay. In this paper, further evidence is presented for a centipede pheromone, the chemical components of male and female secretions are separated using Gas Layer Chromatography (GLC), a qualitative chemical analysis is described and the nature of the pheromone is discussed.
