(Z)-5-Tetradecenyl acetate, a synergist in attraction of Canadian Amathes c-nigrum L. males by the main sex pheromone component, acted as an inhibitor for European populations of this species in Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary. Data on electroantennographic responses of A. c-nigrum males to some monounsaturated acetates, alcohols and aldehydes are also presented and the activity of pheromone inhibitors for the species found in Canada is confirmed for European populations.
