  • The infrastructure of molluscan spermatozoa is of systematic significance and has been studied fairly extensively." In contrast, little is known in molluscs on the number of spermatozoa transferred to the mating partner during copulation (for exceptions see-). Many species of gastropods and cephaJopods are promiscuous and they have different forms of sperm storage providing the potential for sperm competition. Sperm number is an important determinant in achieving fertilization success in sperm… CONTINUE READING
