*[By means of gas chromatography, gas chromatographic coupled mass spectrometry, trail-following experiments, & electrophysiological recordings from worker antennae, the major trail pheromone components from the hindgut of Camponotus atriceps & C. floridanus were identified as 3,5-dimethyl-6-(1-methylpropyl)-tetrahydropyran-2-one & nerolic acid, respectively. The Dufour's gland contents of both species, investigated by gas chromatographic coupled mass spectrometry, show significant differences]
