Direct observations of protandrous sex change in the patellid limpet Patella vulgata
Direct observations of sex change were made on Patella vulgata, which has long been considered a protandrous hermaphrodite based on indirect methods. Thirty per cent of the male limpets that were marked during the spawning season in 2003 here female when they were re-examined during the spawning season in 2004. This confirms that protandry does occur within the superfamily Patellidae

Abstract

Direct observations of sex change were made on Patella vulgata, which has long been considered a protandrous hermaphrodite based on indirect methods. Thirty per cent of the male limpets that were marked during the spawning season in 2003 here female when they were re-examined during the spawning season in 2004. This confirms that protandry does occur within the superfamily Patellidae
