Abstract
    Part B of this series, comprising the Batomorphii, is initiated with taxa of the Rajoidei. The tooth morphology of representatives of nine genera and subgenera is described and illustrated by SEM-photographs. An adapted terminology is introduced for the description of rajoid teeth, because their tooth morphology differs markedly in various aspects from that in selachians. A differential diagnosis for and conclusions on rajoid odontology, as well as an odontological key will be given in a forthcoming issue dealing with the last rajoid taxa.
