Attraction Test2

Another short video detailing the exposure of more recently eclosed male A.ilia specimens to another potential male bait/attraction compound. Unlike the first rapidly dissipating compound, this second compound is much more stable and therefore emits a continuos flow of active volatiles. This second compound is also more along the lines of 'classical' attractants and is similar to some of those investigated by Honda (1973) on Sasakia charonda. More tests are to follow.
