[Objectives]  To analyze and identify the pheromones of Bactocera (Tetradacus) minax (Enderlein). [Methods]  Volatiles from male and female adults were collected at various times by Headspace-Solid Phase Micro Extraction (HS- SPME), and identified chemically by Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) and behaviorally by Electroantennography (EAG). [Results]  GC-MS identified N-(3-methyl-butyl) acetamide as a volatile released by both adult male and female B. minax. The EAG responses of 3-day-old and 15-day-old B. minax to 1, 10, 100 and 1 000 μg of N-(3-methyl-butyl) acetamide were measured. Adults had a strong EAG response to N-(3-methyl-butyl) acetamide. The optimum concentration for EAG was from 100 to 1 000 μg. EAG response varied with dose and dose×sex. [Conclusion]  N-(3-methyl-butyl) acetamide could be a pheromone of B. minax. The results provide information useful for further study of chemical communication in B. minax and the biological control of this pest.
