Abstract

Pheromones of insect species in the order Coleoptera are characterized by considerable structural diversity. Unlike the lepidopterous sex pheromones, which are nearly all fatty acid derivatives, coleopterous sex pheromone structures range in complexity from the relatively simple 3,5-tetradecadienoic acid of the black carpet beetle to the tricyclic terpenoid, lineatin, of the striped ambrosia beetle.
