Scientific Name, Epinotia aporema [TAX]. Lineage, cellular organisms; Eukaryota; Opisthokonta; Metazoa; Eumetazoa; Bilateria; Protostomia;. Epinotia aporema granulovirus (EpapGV) is a fast killing betabaculovirus that infects the bean shoot borer (E. aporema) and is a promising. A granulovirus (GV) isolated from Epinotia aporema (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)—a major soybean pest—was studied in terms of its main.

Males, in turn, display a typical wing fanning response in the presence of a calling female, and are attracted to the females in a Y-tube olfactometer, indicating the presence of volatile pheromones.

Female genitalia are characterized by a pair of rounded pockets on sternum VII and a large rounded corpus bursae with two signa.

Bol Univ Repub Fac Agron Soybean production in southern South America has increased dramatically.

No courtship behaviour was observed when the males reached the mesh that separated the olfactometer from the tube holding the calling female.

Multiplex PCR and quality control of Epinotia aporema granulovirus production. Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, p. Prior to mating, a sequence of events was observed in which the quiescent male responded to the calling female by approaching her while fanning his wings wporema the upright position, male and female then made contact with their antennae, and immediately turned to engage in mating Fig 4. Zporema behaviour of each male was observed continuously aplrema 20 min, recording the first arm chosen and the number of entrances in both arms.

Epinotia aporema granulovirus

Females lay eggs on glabrous nodes of the soybean plant or other leguminous host. Most females started calling during the second scotophase, and all females called from the third, between the fifth and seventh hours after the onset of the scotophase. Males and females were placed in the glass tubes 3h prior to conducting the experiments, and the tube holding a calling female was attached to the arm of the olfactometer 30 min before the onset of the observation period. The first choice of males in the olfactometer tests was analyzed aorema the Chi-square test, and the number of entrances to each arm by the Student’s t-test for paired samples.

In most cases it was possible to observe the putative pheromone gland extruded from the tip of the abdomen Fig 1. No pulsation of the gland or obvious wing fluttering was observed.
