    Pairing is mediated by the secretion from tergal glands, exposed by females in a calling posture and highly attractive to males. The retention characteristics of this area proved to be identical with those of (3Z,6Z,8E)-dodeca-3.6,8-trien-1-ol. Electroantennographic and behavioral assays revealed that units of picograms of the compound represent a stimulus qualitatively and quantitatively equivalent to one female tergal gland. Thus, we hypothesize that (3Z,6Z,8E)-dodeca-3,6,8-trien-1-ol is a major component of the female sex pheromone in P. simplex.
