Cartographie d’Actias isabellae galliaegloria dans les Alpes françaises à l’aide d’un piège attractif non destructif utilisant une phéromone synthétique (Lep. Saturniidae)

Abstract : Despite the premature introduction of protective legislation, the latest IUCN red list considers Actias isabellae to be a species incompletely documented with respect to its distribution and population density. The recent discovery of the A. isabellae sex pheromone, however, makes possible multiple and effective testing for possible presence over an area much more extensive and in a shorter time by avoiding the need to use live material (calling females). A capture trap has been developed to make use of this synthetic pheromone.With around one hundred of these traps and a team of some 15 people, it was possible to cover, over a two-month period, a huge geographical area (Hautes-Alpes, Alpes-de-Haute-Provence). The species distribution has been shown potentially to extend beyond the limits of the present known distribution.
