Carposina niponensis - a synthetic analog of sex pheromone

Smetnik and Prozorova describe recent developments in the use of a synthetic analog of the sex pheromone of Carposina niponensis (EPPO A1 quarantine pest) as a basis for traps which can be used to monitor populations of the pest in the limited part of far-eastern Russia where it occurs (Primor'skii and Khaborovskii provinces, Amur region, southern Sakhalin) and also to survey for possible occurence elsewhere.
