Venezuelan Guayana Plekocheilus: SEM (1)

For a review of the malacofauna from the tepuis in Southern Venezuela and the adjacent area in Brazil, I recently made a series of Scanning Electron Microscope photographs. As not all pictures will make it to the publication – being slight variations on the same theme – I choose to make the photographs available here.

Today, pictures of Plekocheilus (Eurytus) huberi Breure, 2009 of respectively the mandibula, the central area of the radula, the marginal area and an overview to show the shape of the transverse rows.
