Morphometric studies of the tropical leatherleaf slug Laevicaulis alte from prachi belt of Odisha

Badal Das, Lucky Parida

The present study emphasizes the morphometric studies on a tropical leatherleaf slug Laevicaulis alte (Class: Gastropoda, Order: Systellommatophora, Family: Veronicellidae) recovered from Prachi belt of Odisha at Adaspur, Cuttack. The specimens (N=18) were collected from the college garden and traditional morphometric analysis was conducted in the laboratory. A significant positive correlation was obtained between the biological parameters like length-live weight (0.943), length-circumference (0.898), circumference-live weight (0.823). Considering these three sets of morphometric variables in the species i.e; live weight and length, length-circumference, live weight-circumference fitted regression equations were also developed like (Y= 0.998x – 2.307, R2 = 0.888), (Y= 0.607x + 0.017, R2 = 0.806), (Y= 0.536x + 1.671, R2 = 0.678) respectively.
