A possible role for the dorsolateral protocerebral neurosecretory neurons in the trophic adaptations of Lymantria dispar (Lepidoptera: Lymantriidae)

The activity and number of protocerebral neurosecretory neurons of the dorsolateral group (L1, L2 and L2'), as well as the size of the corpora allata were investigated in 5th instar larvae of the gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar) from two populations (oak and locust-tree forests) fed one of two host-plants (oak is a suitable and locust-tree an unsuitable host-plant).
