controlled optical and gustatory stimulus conditions. Experience-based changes in landing behaviour were examined by offering cardboard circles of two different shades of green, treated with either an oviposition stimulant or a deterrent. We employed two training situations. In one situation the two shades

, under these conditions, more females will be attracted (Schwartz, 1994) and more eggs will be oviposited at the site (Stevens & Paszkowski, 2004). However, only a few studies have actually examined the relationship between chorusing and oviposition in the field (except for Stevens & Paszkowski, 2004
