Light microscope and SEM preparations have been made of the radula of Acteon tornatilis (Linnaeus) (Opisthobranchia: Cephalaspidea). The minute teeth are illustrated with SEM photographs, the first time they have been accurately depicted. Comparisons with other acteonid radulae are given, as well as possible function now that diet is known.
