While it is an animal, it is also able to produce its own food in much the same way as a plant does. Protonephridia are common in adult acoelomates (flatworms), many blastocoelomates (rotifers), and some annelids, but are rare among adult eucoelomates (although they occur frequently in various larval types). A similar hydrostatic system can be used to tem- porarily or intermittently extend selected parts of the body, such as the feeding proboscis of most worms, tube feet of echinoderms, and siphons of clams.

Various accessory glands may be present both in males (such as those that produce spermato- phores or seminal fluids) and in females (such as those that produce yolk, egg capsules, or shells). The eggs are cen- trolecithal, with various amounts of yolk. While nudibranchs and their sea-sluggy opisthobranch kin are detorted (untwisted) as adults, notice they all retain a penis that emerges from the right side. The backbone is a column of vertebrae, which are parts of their internal skeleton.

The open ends of the cocoon con- tract and seal as they pass off the anterior end of the body (Figure 13.36F–H). The threads are emplaced by the foot; once attached they quickly harden by a tanning process, whereupon the foot is withdrawn. The test may be made rigid by calcareous and iron salts.

Don’t interrupt anyone else’s presentation. He recorded three species of these “para- sites” (P. globifera, P. triphylla, and P. tridens); forms of these names are still used to describe different types of pedicellariae. Enzymes from the sea star’s digestive organs then begin to digest the soft body of the bivalve inside its own shell. Those that are full- or part-time parasites feed on the body fluids of a variety of vertebrate and invertebrate hosts.

It covers a wide variety of curious natural history that had been reported by early writers and explorers. The copulatory apparatus of leeches is often complex and varies in structure among species. The new species belongs to the genus Barbicambarus, which have distinctive “bearded” antennae, covered in hair-like bristles called setae that boost sensory awareness. “This isn’t a crayfish that someone would have picked up and just said, ‘Oh, it’s another crayfish,’ and put it back,” said University of Illinois aquatic biologist Chris Taylor, who co-discovered the new species with Eastern Kentucky University biological sciences Professor Guenter Schuester. “If you were an aquatic biologist and you had seen this thing, because of the size and the setae on the antennae, you would have recognized it as something really, really different and you would have saved it,” Taylor said in a statement.

Excretion and Osmoregulation One of the major advances of flatworms over diploblas- tic animals is the development of protonephridia. The best known extrusome is the trichocyst of ciliates such as Paramecium, but about ten different types are known from a variety of protists. Thus, at this particular locality, beaver engineering reduced the number of pest mosquitos. Systematics and biogeography: Cladistics and vicariance.

Living xiphosurans inhabit shal- low marine waters, generally on clean sandy bottoms, where they crawl about or burrow just beneath the sur- face, preying on other animals or scavenging. Juveniles apparently have fewer trunk seg- ments than adults. The inverted type is common among flatworms and nemerteans and is made up of a cup of reflective pigment and retinular 80 CHAPTER THREEUNCORRECTED PAGE PROOFS Figure 3.30 An arthropod phonoreceptor, or auditory organ of the fork-tailed katydid, Scudderia furcata.
