Abstract
The principal volatile component (99 + %) of the sex pheromone glands of Lutzomyia longipalpis from Lapinha, Brazil, has been isolated and c haracterized as a novel homosesquiterpene with the specific structure proposed as 9-methylgermacrene-B, ylethylidenyl)-1,5,10-trimethyl-1,5- cyclodecadiene .
