Description

Supplementary movie file legends Supplementary movie 1 The right antennal lobe glomeruli of the male P. americana, showing two macroglomeruli responsive to periplanone-A (A-glomerulus) and periplanone-B (B-glomerulus). Supplementary movie 2 The right antennal lobe glomeruli of the male B. lateralis, showing a single macroglomerulus responsive to periplanone-A and periplanone-B (see text). Note that the glomerulus homologous to the A-glomerulus in P. americana has a size similar to those of ordinary glomeruli. Supplementary movie 3 Mating behavior of P. americana males evoked by the presentation of periplanone. Introducing periplanone-B (5 ng) soaked in filter paper evoked nearly instant mating behavior in males such as wing raising behavior oriented toward the pheromone source. Homsexual behavior with attempts to copulate with neighboring males was also observed. Supplementary movie 4 Behavior of B. lateralis males in response to the presentation of periplanone-B (5 ng) or natural sex pheromone extract (2 female unit). The males showed attraction to the pheromone source and carefully inspected it but never exhibited mating behavior, although the projection neuron that mediates this behavior is exquisitely sensitive to periplanone-B. The presentation of periplanone-A also never evoked mating behavior in the males. Supplementary movie 5 Mating behavior of B. lateralis males in response to the presentation of a female gently anesthetized with CO2. Immediately after careful inspection of the female with antennation, the males exhibited wing raising behavior and attempted to mate with the conspecific female.
