The morphology and fine structure of the convoluted gland inside the venom reservoir of the ponerine ant Dinoponera austrafis (Hymenoptera : Formicidae) are described. The cells of the convoluted gland can be divided into 3 major groups: (1) epithelial cells, (2) glandular cells with end apparatus secreting into the tubule inside the convoluted gland, and (3) glandular cells with end apparatus secreting directly into the venom reservoir. A fourth group of cells belonging to the venom gland of… CONTINUE READING
