 Title    The Sex Pheromone of the Silver Y Moth Chrysodeixis eriosoma (Doubleday) in New Zealand on leave at the En­ tomology D ivision  
 Abstract    An investigation o f the sex pherom one o f the N ew Zealand Silver Y Moth Chrysodeixis erio­ soma (Doubleday), formerly described as Plusia chalcites (Esper) resulted in the identification o f the major active components as 7Z-and 9Z-dodecenyl acetates, in approx. 97:3 ratio. This blend was attractive to C. eriosoma m ales in the field and in a laboratory flight tunnel. 5Z-D odecenyl acetate and 7Z-dodecenyl alcohol inhibited this response in the field. C. eriosoma was also attract­ ed to the 5:1 blend o f 7Z-dodecenyl acetate and 9Z-tetradecenyl acetate reported as the phero­ mone o f Chrysodeixis (Plusia) chalcites in the western Palaearctic. Specialist receptor cells for all 5 compounds mentioned were found in m ale antennal sensilla in both species.
