Abstract:
The sexual behaviour of females of the Egyptian cotton leafworm, Spodoptera littoralis (Boisduval), was studied in the laboratory. Calling of females was maximal on the 2-3rd night between 3 and 9 h into scotophase. Largest amounts of pheromone were found in the glands of 1-3 day-old ♀ ♀ 2-3 h into scotophase: a maximum of 6-8 ng of (Z,E)-9,11-tetradecadienyl acetate per female. Very low amounts of pheromone were detected 1 h before and at the end of scotophase. Mating of 2-3 day-old females, occurred mainly between 0 and 3 h into scotophase. Mating suppressed the pheromone titre drastically when measured 3 h after copulation but the titre increased significantly after 24 h, prior to egg laying. However, when egg laying commenced, the amount of pheromone detected was negligible. A high concentration of synthetic pheromone in closed containers did not affect calling of females. On the other hand mating was drastically suppressed in a pheromone-permeated atmosphere. © 1987 Dr W. Junk Publishers.
