 Title    A ctive Cyanogenesis — in Zygaenids and Other Lepidoptera  
 Abstract    The liberation of hydrocyanic acid by intact not damaged living insects is described as "active cyanogenesis". This phenomenon — as in contrast to "passive cyanogenesis" observed in plants, where enzyme and substrate get in contact only after tissue damage — is reported from the Zygaenidae. Quantitative data demonstrate that the Zygaenidae can increase the amount of emitted HCN upon irritation. The significance of this phenomenon as a mean of defense is discussed.
