Abstract
    Part B of this series, comprising the Batomorphii is continued with more taxa of the dasyatoid families Dasyatidae and Urolophidae and the myliobatoid family Gymnuridae (additional materlal). The tooth morphology of their representatives, as specified in the title is described and illustrated by SEM- photographs. Material of type species Taeniura lymma (male and female), Aetoplatea tentaculata (adult female), Urogymnus asperrimus (male) and Urolophoides matsubarai (male) became available subsequently, which is described and illustrated additionally. A differential diagnosis and a final conclusion on the odontology of the supraspecific taxa of the Suborder Myliobatoidei will be presented in the final issue dealing with the Myliobatidae.
