abstract = "As shown by synthesis and enantioselective gas chromatography, males and females of the caddisfly species Potamophylax latipennis and Potamophylax cingulatus produce (1R,3S,5S,7S)-1-ethyl-3,5,7-trimethyl-2,8-dioxabicyclo[3.2.1]octane, while Glyphotaelius pellucidus produces 1,3-diethyl-4,6-dimethyl-2,7-dioxabicyclo[2.2.1]heptane, having either the (1S,3S,4R,6S) or (1R,3R,4S,6S)-configuration. As shown by electrophysiological investigations, the compounds are perceived by the antennae of both sexes. (C) 2004 Published by Elsevier Ltd.",
