Fine structure of the spermatheca of Apis mellifera

Fine structure of the spermatheca of Apis mellifera

Journal of Insect Physiology 21(1): 89-109

The ultrastructure of the receptacle and duct of the spermatheca of non-fertilized queens, of queens a few days after fertilization, and of mature queens (2-3 years old), was investigated. The epithelium of the receptacle did not appear to be involved in the production of secretion. Autolysomes and large amounts of filamentous material of a polysaccharide nature accumulate within the cytoplasm of old bees.
