Abstract

Trimusculus reticulatus (Sowerby) is an air-breathing, limpet-like, pulmonate gastropod inhabiting the intertidal zone of the northeastern Pacific Ocean, from California to Washington. Although many distributional records are reported for this relatively common species, little has been published on its internal anatomy, which is also true for other Trimusculus species. The external morphology and internal anatomy of Trimusculus reticulatus are described. Scanning electron microscopy pictures of anatomical parts of Trimusculus are presented here for the first time. The anatomy of Trimusculus reticulatus is compared with other Trimusculus species. The need for a systematic revision of Trimusculus is discussed.
