 Title    Morphology and Chemical Contents of Dufour Glands of Pseudomyrmex Ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)  
 Abstract    The morphology and ultrastructure of the D ufou r gland o f a pseudomyrmecine ant is de­ scribed. The gland has an unusually large volume but possesses a very thin epithelial lining. Its morphology does not constitute a specific subfamily character as in some ant subfamilies. Analysis by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry o f the glands of three species showed them all to be rich in saturated linear hydrocarbons (C ]7:0 and C i5:0 dom inant) and isopropyl esters of the com mon fatty acids. Each species produces its own characteristic mixture of these substances. The most abundant ester in Pseudomyrmex ferruginea is isopropyl oleate and in P. sp. A it is isopropyl palmitate, in P.flavicornis there alate female o f P. ferruginea contained a very similar
