This article reports on the experimental results of a research programme dealing with the reproductive strategies of Helicodiceros muscivorus (L. fil.) Engler(Araceae: Aroideae). In particular, the role played by the odorous mixture emanated by the vegetable species as olfactory information received by the insects, and the importance of that specific biological activity in governing the behavioural choices made by the pollinating insects is studied.
