Abstract

Male Grapholitha molesta hairpencil components are ethyl trans-cinnamate, mellein, methyl jasmonate, and methyl 2-epijasmonate. The natural behavioral effect elicited by hairpencil-displaying males during courtship in attracting sex-pheromone-releasing females from several centimeters away can be duplicated by mixtures of ethyl trans-cinnamate in various combinations with the other components.
