Abstract
    Part B of this series, the Batomorphii is continued with the description and illustration of the tooth morphology (SEM-photographs) with additional information about the tooth vascularisation of the order Torpediniformes. Differential diagnosis and a classification of the torpediniform taxa from the odontological point of view are also presented. It closes the entire series on sharks, rays and skates and holocepha1ans after 16 years. The authors and editor are planning to enhance the contents of the series with the publication of additional short notices including their persona1 reflections on the systematics of the whole group concerned.
