Abstract/Contents:Flight activity, mating behaviour and sex attraction in sympatric populations of Cyclocephala immaculata (Ol.) and C. borealis Arr. in Kentucky were studied. Flight and mating of C. immaculata began at dusk and terminated about 2 h later, while peak activity of c. borealis occurred between midnight and 04.00 h. Trapping experiments indicated that both C. immaculata and C. borealis females produce a potent volatile sex pheromone that is attractive to males of both species. Previous mating reduced but did not entirely suppress female attractiveness. Female rinses in cyclohexane and ether were effective baits for luring males to traps. Although the 2 species apparently utilise a common airborne sex attractant, they remain temporally reproductively isolated.
