Abstract

The present research paper provides an account of gross anatomy of reproductive system in snail L. acuminata. Results obtained shows that the reproductive system of L. acuminata consists of three divisions: (1) The ovotestis or hermaphroditic gland and its duct i.e., the hermaphroditic duct, (2) The female genital tract and (3) The male genital tract. The female duct system consists of the oviduct, the uterus, the vagina and associated accessory glands which include the albumen gland, the muciparous gland and oothecal gland. The male duct system consists of the vas efferens, the prostate gland, vas deferens and the copulatory organ the Penial complex. We hope that the results obtained will be highly useful to understand reproductive anatomy and taxonomy of freshwater gastropods.
