Bursal glands of Reduviidae (Insecta—Heteroptera)
In Reduviidae, the glandular outgrowths from the bursa either as paired or as a single median gland distinctly different from the paired subrectal glands are described as the bursal glands. The occurrence of such female accessory glands has been investigated in 22 species of Reduviidae. Based on their development, the glands are classified into 3 types. The histomorphology of the gland in various species is given.
