The ocelli contain cil- iated receptor cells, as in many other deuterostomes. Note the line separating the right and left muscle masses in the rear of the foot; this separation allows a some- what “bipedal-like” motion as the animal moves. (D) The moon snail, Polinices, has a huge foot that can be inflated by incorporating water into a network of channels in its tissue, thus allowing the animal to plow through the surface layer of soft sediments. (E) Tenagodus, a sessile vermetid worm snail. (C) (D) E-proof needed UNCORRECTED PAGE PROOFS push against the anchored end of the foot.

Also, we caution you that the homology of the “thorax” and “abdomen” among the major crustacean lineages is probably more reverie than reality; the segmental homologies of the thorax and abdomen have not yet been unraveled among the crustacean classes. In their hy- pothesis, a pelagic gastrea gave rise to the cnidarians and to a second lineage—another larval-like creature they call a trochaea. Symmetry – how parts of animals are arranged around central axis i.

However, most live in the nest or sleeping area of their host, emerging only periodically to feed. Invertebrates form a paraphyletic group. ^ Since invertebrates include all animals except a certain group, invertebrates form a paraphyletic group. It also provides the strength needed for seg- mental muscle attachment and for predation on other shelled invertebrates. Most of the muscles are penetrated by canals of the lacunar system.

The oviduct may bear spe- cialized structures for sperm storage or egg case secre- tion. Invertebrates do not possess the immunoglobulins found in higher animals, although proteins containing immunoglobulin-like domains have been identified [ 2 ]. The body undulates little if at all, and there is a corresponding reduction in the size of the longitudinal muscle bands and their importance in locomotion.
