On the Genus Bosellia (Mollusca: Gastropoda; Ascoglossa)
Abstract:Three species of Bosellia Trinchese, 1891, were collected from two species of Halimeda: B. corinneae, new for science; B. mimetica curasoae Marcus, 1970, new for North America; and B. marcusi d. B.-R. Marcus, 1972. Anatomical descriptions and comparisons of the three species are given. Insemination is different: in B. m. curasoae sperm is injected into the female pore, in B. marcusi sperm is injected into the pore of a bursa at the hind end of the body, and in B. corinneae hypodermic impregnation occurs.
