A set of (methylthio)phenols from the spider orchid Caladenia crebra were identified as pollinator attractants, as well as sex pheromones of the pollinator wasp Campylothynnus flavopictus. As described by B. Bohman and co-workers in their Communication (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201702864), three of these compounds were previously unknown in nature and were characterized by detailed mass spectrometric analyses and syntheses. Their activity was confirmed in comprehensive field bioassay experiments.
