The Genus Rostanga

February 8, 2002
From: Bill Rudman

I promised some time ago to post some material on the Indo-West Pacific species of Rostanga. The recent excellent photos of Rostanga risbeci from Japan and some other queries I have received have been the catalyst. Today you will find a number of Rostanga messages and new pages/ Fact Sheets on the following species. In most cases there are also pages on the radula and anatomical features.

Rostanga aliusrubens
Rostanga arbutus
Rostanga australis
Rostanga bassia
Rostanga bifurcata
Rostanga calumus
Rostanga dentacus
Rostanga muscula
Rostanga orientalis
Rostanga pulchra

I plan some more general pages on this fascinating genus in the near future. Any more contributions on the genus will be gratefully received.
