Females of H. schachtii and H. rostochiensis secrete male attractant all over the body, so it is probably produced by the hypodermis or distributed in the pseudocoelom rather than by special glands opening to the surface. More attractant is secreted around the tail of H. schachtii females than around the head, so the egg sac can act as a carrier of the pheromone whereas the small egg sac of H. rostochiensis does not. A correlation between the attractiveness of H. schachtii females and the presence of an egg sac suggests that a single mechanism may control secretions from several organs.
