Spermiogenesis and fertilization in the limpet Tectura testudinalis (Mollusca: Archaeogastropoda: Patelloidea) were examined using scanning and transmission electron microscopy, as well as light microscopy. Spermiogenesis was similar to that described for other Lottiidae (Patelloidea), but some key differences were noted. We observed that the acrosomal… CONTINUE READING
