  • Summary By combining ultrastructural and histochemical approaches, the paraxial organs of Euscorpius tergestinus (syn. E. carpathicus; Scorpiones, Euscorpiidae) have been studied for the first time. The paraxial organs are symmetrical structures in the male genital system. They are located on each side of the mesosoma and end at the genital aperture. The paraxial organs have a glandular function. They are directly involved in the secretion of the two hemispermatophores, which are deposited in… CONTINUE READING
