Abstract:
From the defensive secretion of the rove beetles (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae) Ontholestes murinus (L.) and Xantholinus glaber (Norden) nine volatiles have been identified by GC-MS data. From O. murinus a spiroketal was recorded for the first time from an arthropod defensive secretion. X . glaber has been found to represent the first staphylinid sequestering the monoterpenes limonen and isopulegol.
