Here are some SEM photos of the radula of Crosslandia viridis.

PHOTOS: Angourie, nthn New South Wales, Australia, 7 October 1979. AM C117729. Upper photo showing the central region of the radular ribbon and the inner laterals on the right side. Lower photo shows outer teth on the right side. Photos: Geoff Avern.

Scyllaea pelagica, like Crosslandia viridis, has a central radular tooth, closely flanked on each side by lateral teeth. Notobryon wardi, on the other hand, lacks a central tooth.
