Pyrazines Attract Catocheilus Thynnine Wasps

Bohman, Bjorn; Peakall, Rodney


Five previously identified semiochemicals from the sexually deceptive Western Australian hammer orchid Drakaea livida, all showing electrophysiological activity in gas chromatography-electroantennogram detection (EAD) studies, were tested in field bioassays as attractants for a Catocheilus thynnine wasp. Two of these compounds, (3,5,6-trimethylpyrazin-2-yl)methyl 3-methylbutanoate and 2-(3-methylbutyl)-3,5,6- trimethylpyrazine, were attractive to male wasps. Additionally, the semiochemical...[Show more]
