The antennae of male spotted tentiform leafminers, Phyllonorycter blancardella, from Ontario, Canada, exhibited similar electroantennogram responses when stimulated with E10-12:Ac or E4,E10-12:Ac. In field trapping experiments, E10-12:Ac was two-fold or more attractive than E4, E10-12:Ac, and E4,E10-12:Ac did not enhance the attractiveness of E10-12:Ac. E4,E10-12:Ac has not been identified in the pheromone of P. blancardella and it is hypothesized that the structural similarity of this compound and E10-12:Ac, the major pheromone compound of this species, may be responsible for the electrophysiological and behavioral responses to E4,E10-12:Ac. The possible reasons for the disparity between the results of our field trapping experiments and those carried out in Nova Scotia, Canada, and Massachusetts, USA., where E4,E10-12:Ac was found to be two to four times more attractive to P. blancardella than E10-12:Ac, are discussed.
