THE GENITAL SYSTEM OF THE MALAYAN LIMESTONE HILL SNAIL GYLIOTRACHELA DEPRESSISPIRA, WITH NOTES ON BREEDING

Authors


Abstract

The genital system of G. depressispira was found to be of the generalized pulmonate pattern. Points of difference from more complex stylommatophoran genital systems are discussed. Evidence of a seasonal breeding rhythm based on seasonal rainfall, and of a form of protandry is given and discussed.
