Gross morphology and ultrastructural study of albumen gland of the land snail Archachatina marginata ovum (Pfeiffer) (Pulmonata: Achatinidae).

Abstract

The gross morphology of the albumen gland of the edible land snail Archachatina marginata ovum (Pfeiffer) was studied by measurement of the shell length of the snails and wet weight of albumen gland of specimens collected from wild. Additionally, the structure of the albumen gland was studied by light and electron microscopy. The gland is large during the… (More)
