Gibb, Andrew R.; Suckling, D. Max; El-Sayed, Ashraf M.; Bohman, Bjorn; Unelius, C.R.; Dymock, Jennifer J.; Larsen, Michelle L; Willoughby, Bruce E.


The grass webworm Herpetogramma licarsisalis (Lepidoptera: Crambidae), which has recently established in pasture in Northland, New Zealand, is an important pest of many tropical and subtropical grasses. Two pheromone components, (Z)-11-hexadecen-1-yl acetate (Z11-16:Ac) and (11Z,13E)- hexadecadien-1-yl acetate (Z11,E13-16:Ac), were identified in pheromone gland extracts of female moths by gas chromatography (GC), GC-electroantennographic detection, and GC-mass spectrometry in conjunction with...[Show more]
