The legs of workers of the ponerine ant Amblyopone reclinata harbour at least five different exocrine glands. The pretarsal arolium gland is a common structure in the legs of all Hymenoptera, the pretarsal footprint gland is also found in the hindlegs of other Amblyopone species, while the epithelial metatibial gland is found in ants of the doryline section. Two novel glands are added to this repertoire: an epithelial gland surrounding a central reservoir space occurs in the tibia of the front- and hindlegs, and a cluster of three secretory cells was found in the distal part of the hindleg tibia adjacent to the metatibial gland, their accompanying duct cells open through the articulation membrane that connects the hindleg tibia and metatarsus. A possibly glandular epithelium was found in the tibial spur of the hindlegs.
