Two candidate attractants, phenol and 1,4-benzoquinone, a synthetic mixture of typical compounds from green-leaf odours [(Z)-3-hexenyl acetate: (Z)-3-hexen-1-ol: benzaldehyde: (E)-2-hexen-1-ol: 1-hexanol; 100:20:10:1:1] and freshly damaged oak leaves were screened for field attractancy in funnel traps in Hungary. Males of two Rhizotrogus spp. (Coleoptera, Scarabaeidae, Melolonthinae), R. aestivus 01. and R. vernus Germ. were caught in larger numbers. While R. aestivus catches were probably chance captures, male R. vernus was significantly attracted to the baits containing 1,4-benzoquinone. This compound represents a promising basis for the development of a monitoring trap for R. vernus.
