Radula of Notobryon wardi

September 14, 2002
From: Bill Rudman

Here are some SEM photos of the radula of Notobryon wardi.

PHOTOS: Hong Kong, 11 April 1983. AM C139151. Both photos showing the central region of the radular ribbon. Note the absence of a central tooth. [there are some mishapen first lateral teeth]. Photos: Geoff Avern.

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