The protected moth Graellsia isabellae (Graells 1849) (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae) is one of the most emblematic European insects. Because of its large size, attractive wing patterns, and restricted geographical distribution, it has become a symbol for several entomological and conservation organizations.
The almond bark beetle, Scolytus amygdali, is a pest of cultivated species of stone (Prunus) and pome (Malus) fruits in the Mediterranean region and Southern Europe. Today populations of this beetle in Israel have reached high densities.
In a joint effort with Markus P. Rantala1 to formulate a new attractant for Polia species, interestingly one of the pheromone mixtures was found to attract large numbers of Syngrapha parilis and another large numbers of Sympistis lapponica.
The chemical name for the title compound is (Z)-11-octadecenyl acetate, however, it is better known by its common name cis-vaccenyl acetate. cis-Vaccenyl acetate is a volatile chemical compound that acts as a pheromone in Drosophila and at least one species of longhorn beetle.
