Abstract/Contents:Presents a study "to finish the chemical characterization of this beetle's [southern masked chafer] sex pheromone. Once the chemical structure is established, the pheromone will be synthesized and tested for efficacy in both laboratory and field bioassays." States that "although the complete structure [has] not yet [been] established, we will continue our research until [a] sufficient amount [of] grubs are collected and the pheromone is isolated in sufficient quantities for more sophisticated experiments." This one-year study began in 2000.

Note:Pictures, color
USGA Summary Points:The molecule has been purified. However, the exact structure of the molecule has not been determined. The pheromone is active at extremely low levels (nanograms). Need 10,000 grubs to complete elucidation of the molecular structure.
