Abstract

Electroantennogram studies of female Galleria mellonella showed a two-acceptor system for the sex pheromones, n-nonanal and n-undecanal, produced by the male. The nine carbon pheromone reacts with both acceptors, however, n-undecanal only reacts with the acceptor for the eleven carbon pheromone.
