Mating behaviour and evidence for sex-specific pheromones inHedypathes betulinus (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae: Lamiinae) Laborato´rio de Semioquı´micos, Departamento de Quı´mica, Universidade Federal do Parana´, Curitiba-PR, Brazil cerambycidae, mating behaviour,pheromones, Y-olfactometer The mating behaviour and evidence for sex-specific pheromones of themain pest of green mate, Ilex paraguariensis, of the southern region of Brazil, Hedypathes betulinus (Klug, 1825) (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae: Lamiinae), were studied in the laboratory. The mating sequence of Laborato´rio de Semioquı´micos, Departamento H. betulinus includes: female approaching the male, antennal contact, de Quı´mica, Universidade Federal do Parana´, male mounting the female and start of copulation. This mating sequence CP 19081, CEP 81531-990, Curitiba-PR, Brazil.
E-mail: [email protected] provided support for our hypothesis that recognition of males by femalesmay be mediated by a male-produced pheromone and males recognize Received: October 2, 2008; accepted: April females by contact pheromones. The behavioural responses in an olfac- tometer of male and female H. betulinus to volatiles released by maleand female conspecifics confirmed the presence of a male-produced sex pheromone. This finding suggests that visual cues are not primary ineliciting a sexual response from females. Three male-specific compoundswere detected in the chromatographic analysis, providing chemical sup-port to the behavioural data. Males did not respond to dead-washedfemales but 70% of males attempted to mate with dead-washed extract-treated females, suggesting that extracts contained contact pheromones.
Based on these results, a male-produced sex pheromone and a female-produced contact pheromone should be essential in the communicationsystem of H. betulinus.

Similarly was maintained for 10 min. Upon finishing, thechromatograms obtained with extracts of female andmales were analysed for the presence of sex-specificcandidate pheromone components.
This test was performed following the proceduredescribed by Ginzel and Hanks (2003) and Ginzelet al. (2003). Individual females were freeze killed()4°C for 30 min), allowed to warm to room temper-ature ($15 min), and presented to a male in a plasticarena (15 cm diameter · 18 cm tall) to test whethermales would recognize dead females and attempt tomate, demonstrating that recognition cues wereintact.
females were removed by immersing them in three 1-ml aliquots of hexane for 10 min each; aliquots werecombined and concentrated to 1 ml under an argonstream. Dead-washed females were then presentedindividually to the same male to see if that male nolonger responded, demonstrating that chemical cueshad been removed and mating was not elicited bymechanoreception alone. To prove that the extractcontained the pheromone, we pipetted 1 ml femaleextract on each original dead-washed female, allowedit to evaporate, and presented the female again tomales to see if the recognition cue was restored. Atrial was scored as a ‘response’ if the male, afterantennal contact, mounted her and attempted to Fig. 1 Mating behaviour in Hedypathes betulinus. 1 – Female and copulate.

This reliance on recognize females by contact pheromones.
antennal contact is apparently common among longhorned beetles (Michelsen 1966; Hughes 1981; females were significantly attracted to odours from Akutsu and Kuboki 1983; Kim et al. 1992; Hanks male volatile extract when compared to a hexane et al. 1996; Wang et al. 1996a; Lingafelter 1998; Dejia control: 36 females chose the male extract and eight et al. 1999; Hanks 1999) and is consistent with recog- nition by contact pheromones (Kim et al. 1993; P < 0.01); however, males were not attracted to Fukaya et al. 1996, 2000; Wang 1998; Ginzel et al.
