Description: In south-central British Columbia, the attraction of Ips latidens (LeConte) to its pheromone, ipsenol, was inhibited by (S)-(+)-ipsdienol, a pheromone for I. pini (Say). (R)-(-)-Ipsdienol had no effect on I. latidens. (S)-(+)-lpsdienol probably plays a role in interspecific communication between the two species, facilitating reductions in interspecific competition for breeding material and/or interspecific mating interference.
Keywords: Coleoptera, Scolytidae, Ips latidens, Ips pini, interspecific communication, synomone, pheromone, ipsenol, ipsdienol, chirality, enantiospecificity.
