Title :

Notes on scent marking by means of an androconial brush organ in the Skipper Coeliades forestan (Stoll, [1782]) (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae: Coeliadinae)

Abstract :

Scent marking behavior by males of the skipper Coeliades forestan (Stoll,[1782]) (Hesperiidae: Coeliadinae) is described for the first time.  Putative pheromone is deposited on the leaves of shrubs and trees by males, in a linear territory while patrolling, by means of a black, brush-like organ which is exserted from the anal end of the abdomen.  Scent marking by male Lepidoptera appears not to have been reported before.
