Attraction of moths to enantiomers of several epoxydienes

Florida Entomologist 79(3): 392-397
Attraction of moths to enantiomers of several epoxydienes
Males of four species of moths were captured in traps baited with enantiomers of straight chain epoxydienes in north Florida. The noctuid Renia salusalis was captured in traps baited with (3Z,6S,7R,9Z)-6,7-epoxy-3,9-nonadecadiene, the geometrid Probole alienaria in traps baited with a 1:1 mixture of enantiomers of cis-6,7-epoxy-3,9-nonadecadiene, and the noctuid Zale lunifera as well as the arctiid Halysidota tessellaris in traps baited with (3Z,6Z,9R,10S)-9,10-epoxy-3,6-henicosadiene. These compounds may be part of the sex pheromone of females of these 4 species.
