Abstract
    Part B, No. 1a of this series, comprising of the Batomorphii the first section on the Rajoidei, is continued with further rajoid taxa. The tooth morphology of representatives of eleven more genera and subgenera Bathyraja albomaculata, Bathyraja spinicauda, Psammobatis rudis, Raja (Amblyraja) radiata, Raja (Dipturus) batis, Raja (Leucoraja) naevus, Raja (Raja) clavata, Raja (Rajella) bathyphila, Raja (Rajella) fyllae, Raja (Rioraja) agassizi, Raja (Rostroraja) alba, Raja lintea and Sympterygia bonapartei is described and illustrated by SEM-photographs. Differential diagnoses, systematic interpretations, as well as an odontological key will be given in a forthcoming issue dealing with the last rajoid taxa.
