4b), but there is evidence that the ability to dealkylate may have been lost in these members, which would not be surprising considering their predaceous nature. The basal members of the Hymenoptera, Lepidoptera and Diptera are phytophagous, and dealkylation is found in all of the primitive members of 38 S. T. BEHMER AND W. D. NES these orders. So far, it appears that this ability has been maintained throughout the Lepidoptera, but not throughout the Hymenoptera or Diptera. Among the Hymenoptera, dealkylation ability has been lost in the Apocrita, so bees, like the derived hemipterans, use various dietary sterols in unmetabolized form and have Makisterone A as their moulting hormone.

This may not be unexpected for the specialist, but H. zea feeds on a wide range of plants. Perhaps the preferred host range of H. , 1997). g. the pyralids. g. damaged fruits and stored products. Highly mobile generalist Lepidoptera larvae are likely to ingest both suitable and unsuitable sterols when they feed. Nes et al. (1997) investigated the consequences of this by rearing H. zea on a synthetic diet that contained 20 S. T. BEHMER AND W. D. NES different proportions of cholesterol (suitable) and 24-dihydrolanosterol (unsuitable).

D. g. anobiids and ptinids, within the superfamily Bostrichoidea, which grow quite well on the fungal sterol ergosterol. Perhaps sterol use in the Bostrichoidea is related to feeding ecology. For the zoophagous D. maculatus (Dermestidae) cholesterol is the only sterol that supports growth and development, while in the phytophagous Kharpa beetle, Trogoderma granarium, which is also a dermestid, sitosterol and stigmasterol, in addition to cholesterol, support growth and development.
