1 When laying eggs, adult female Diprion pini discriminated between clones of Scots pine, Pinus sylvestris.

2 Larval survival was affected by Scots pine clone but was not correlated with oviposition preference.

3 Diprion pini laid most eggs on tougher needles of Scots pine.

4 There was no evidence to suggest that D. pini is responding to the monoterpene composition of the foliage.
