Abstract

Traps baited with sex pheromone lures for the noctuid moths Chrysodeixis chalcites (Esper) and Feltia jaculifera (Guenée) captured males of the confamilial moth Fishia yosemitae (Grote). These lures were a mixture of (Z)-7-dodecenyl acetate (Z7-12Ac) and (Z)-9-tetradecenyl acetate (Z9-14Ac). When these chemicals were tested as lures in traps, separately and together, F. yosemitae males were not captured in traps baited with Z7-12Ac alone, or Z-14Ac alone, but were consistently captured in traps baited with a one to one mixture of the two chemicals. In three field tests, male F. yosemitae were trapped in late September and early October. This moth is not an agricultural pest, but may be captured in traps used to detect or monitor several important armyworm, cutworm, and looper pests of agricultural crops, interfering with the monitoring of those pests.
