Radula of Embletonia gracilis

September 16, 2002
From: Bill Rudman

Here are some photos of the radular ribbon of Embletonia gracilis from Christmas Island, Indian Ocean. [AM C132427].Photos: Geoff Avern.

In Embletonia, oral glands are present and the single median tooth in the uniseriate radula has a central pointed cusp flanked by a few denticles. The cutting edge of the jaw plates is denticulate.

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
