The mahogany shoot borer Hypsipyla grandella Zeller is one of the worst neotropical forest pests. Currently there is no control method that effectively reduces levels of infestation to an economically acceptable threshold. Basic knowledge on the sexual behavior of this pest is required to develop control methods.
However, so far reproduction in this species has only been achieved in captivity and studied granella outdoor mating cages. Here we describe for the first time, as far as we know, the precopulatory and copulatory behavior of H.
We found males and females performed a short and long wing-fanning behavior. Copulations under laboratory conditions lasted almost two hours. These results are comparable to studies in outdoor cages. Detailed observations on the mating behavior under controlled conditions, and what factors affect mating success, can contribute toward a better understanding of H. Encontramos que los machos y hembras realizan un comportamiento de aleteo corto y aleteo largo.
Estos resultados son similares a los observados en jaulas al aire libre.
