The radular apparatus of Biomphalaria occidentalis Paraense, 1981, Biomphalaria oligoza Paraense, 1971, Biomphalaria peregrina (d'Orbigny, 1835), Biomphalaria schrammi (Crosse, 1864) and Biomphalaria tenagophila (d'Orbigny, 1835) from the Metropolitan Region of Sao Paulo, Brazil were analyzed from Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) micrographs. The data support the usage of characters of central, lateral and intermediate teeth in the species identification of Biomphalaria. The use of SEM provided additional quantitative and structural details to radula descriptions, which are extremely important for elucidating the taxonomy of Biomphalaria species. (AU)
