 Title    Oral Cleansing in Spiders is Gland Mediated!  
 Abstract    Histochemical and micromorphological investigations of the gnathocoxal gland in spiders brought out its uniquely adaptive cleansing function. The prey particulates, caught in the oral mi­ crostructures, are bound with mucopolysaccharides or glyco-muco-proteins from the glandular se­ cretions in Araneus and Theridion species into a bolus, and are expelled following each food up­ take.
