Abstract

During field screening of polyene compounds, conducted at different localities of H ungary, in 1984, sex attractants were found for Costaconvexa polygram m ata Bkh., as (3Z, 6Z, 9Z)-3,6,9-eicosatriene; Eupithecia subnotata H bn., as (3Z, 6Z, 9Z)-3,6,9-nonadecatriene; Synthom is phegea L., as (3Z, 6Z, 9Z)-3,6,9-heneicosatriene and for Dysauxes ancilla L., as (3Z, 6 Z, 9Z)-l,3,6,9-nonadecatetraene. (7E, 9Z)-7,9-dodecadienyl acetate was found to be a sex attractant for Sterrha rubraria Stgr.
