Abstract: It was described the morphology and histological composition of the structures related to production, storage and distribution of Bracon vulgaris venom, a wasp that parasite their hosts after the inoculation of a venom which causes irreversible paralysis. Were found 22 glandular filaments, coated with secretory epithelium associated with a reservoir coated internally by a chitin layer and externally by striated muscular fibers. A valve mediates the passage of the toxin to venom duct towards the parasitoids sting.
