The digestive anatomy of Radix sp. from Taal Lake, Batangas, Philippines, was studied. The major differences with the other known lymnaeids previously described from the Philippines are found in the radular formula, presence of intestinal caecum, the orientation of the pylorus and the intestine, and the number of loops made by the intestine around the stomach and the digestive gland.
