Mycoplasma amphoriforme

Mycoplasma amphoriforme is a species of bacteria in the genus Mycoplasma. This genus of bacteria lacks a cell wall around their cell membrane. Without a cell wall, they are unaffected by many common antibiotics such as penicillin or other beta-lactam antibiotics that target cell wall synthesis. Mycoplasma are the smallest bacterial cells yet discovered, can survive without oxygen and are about 0.1 µm in diameter. It has been found in human respiratory infections and is associated with chronic bronchitis in immunosuppressed patients, it has been observed to possess gliding motility, a protruding polar tip resembling that of M. gallisepticum, cytoskeletal structure at its polar tip similar to M. pneumonia's. Those infected show symptoms of lower respiratory tract infections such as increased respiratory rates and increased pulse rates; the type strain is strain A39 = ATCC BAA-992 = NCTC 11740.

Thysanoplusia orichalcea

Thysanoplusia orichalcea, the slender burnished brass, is a moth of the family Noctuidae. The species was first described by Johan Christian Fabricius in 1775, it is a polyphagous pest of vegetable crops that originated in Indonesia, from where it spread to Europe, South Asia, Sri Lanka, Africa and New Zealand. In northern Europe it is a migrant species; the wingspan is 36–44 mm. Its head and the vertex of its head are reddish orange. Tegulae and forewings pale reddish brown; the forewings are extensively covered with a metallic golden shimmering surface. Only the costal field and hem are brown. Sub-basal and postmedial waved lines indistinct and whitish in colour; the sub-marginal line irregularly lunulate. The reniform and orbicular tain are white bordered; the unpatterned hindwings are grey brown, somewhat darker at the margin. The thorax is furry and with some hair tufts, the proboscis is well developed. Larva bluish green with a few short dorsal hairs. There are a prominent lateral line; the moth flies from August depending on the location.

The larvae feed on various herbaceous plants, including crops such as sunflower, Coreopsis and soybean. In managing their population, phenylacetaldehyde, a volatile floral compound attractive to many Lepidoptera and present in Canada thistle, was found to be effective in trapping the females of the species.
