Pictures for Display: "Things With Stings"

i am my group, scabies ( http://scabies.myfreeforum.org/index.php ) have informational displays at
i would like to have a display of all the dif ways arthropods can envenomate (or chemically hurt you... what exactly would you call what assassins do?)

so far i can think of

Spiders : Fangs, modified chelicerae
Scorpion : Aculeus, modified terminal body segment?
Centipede : Forciples, modified legs
Pseudoscorpion : Claws, modified pedipalps

Assassin bugs : Proboscis, modified mouthparts (injects digestive enzymes, could be a nice like segue into the proper venoms)
Hymenoptera : Stings, modified ovipositer?

any other stingers?

i did think of jellyfish and pneumatocysts... but no one keeps them and we wouldn't have any pics that we control of them

so, i need good pictures of each bug and the business parts of each bug.

i would really like two pictures of each bug we are going to feature

1) whole body shot

2) just the injector, clear and well lit pic of it



i still need good pics of:
Assassin bugs : Proboscis, modified mouthparts (injects digestive enzymes, could be a nice like segue into the proper venoms)
Hymenoptera : Stings, modified ovipositer?


remember, i need a full body shot and a good clear shot of the venom equipment!



here it is so far

THANKS!

This is really cool! And Caco you're right about the Hymenoptera their stings are modified ovipositors. That's how the whole thing started.

And I wish I had decent pics of these kind of things but I don't. Sad
