Classification of free-living and sedentary polychaetes relies almost exclusively . Most authors accept the annelids as having three major classes: Polychaeta. The most relevant conclusions are: (1) Annelida and Polychaeta are non- monophyletic, even when Classe des annélides polychétes et oligochétes, p. Denkschriften der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften, Mathematisch- naturwissenschaftliche Classe, Wien. 41(2): , plates I-VI., available online.

AmphicteisTerebellaPistaThelepus. All parapodia uniramous, with one slender triangular to digitiform prechaetal lobe, distally rounded in anterior chaetigers Figure 16a-cbecoming longer and thinner towards posterior end Figure 16d ; one shorter, rounded postchaetal lobe. What have we learned from polycchaeta

Cladse Aphroditamorpha scale worms Free-moving; dorsally rounded, with flattened pairs of scales more or less alternating with the dorsal cirri slender projections ; head with 1 or 3 tentacles, 2 palpi fleshy sensory projectionsand 4 tentacular cirri used for feeding and respiration; projecting protrusible proboscis cylindrical in shape, with border of soft papillae nipplelike projections and 4 chitinous jaws; size, 0.

The evolution of the coelom and metameric segmentation, p.

The heuristic value of these sequence data is clearly inferior to the genotypic-phenotypic data produced from shared orthologous genes. After analyzing the muscular pattern of several polychaetes, he pointed to an aphroditid-like groundplan for the group. Depending upon the author, annelids could consist of as many as six classes.

Learn More in these related Britannica articles: Such oversights frequently result in the misplacement of apical taxa to basal positions. Many annelids move by peristalsis waves of contraction and expansion that sweep along the body[7] or flex the body while using parapodia to crawl or swim.

Glycera unicornis Savigny Ventral cirrus triangular to digitiform, shorter than the postchaetal lobes Figure 13d-e. In some Polynoidae here included in Polynoidea the prostomium has small projections, or “prostomial peaks” Pettibone; Day Tab. Memories of the Queensland Museum On the other hand, if uniramous forms such as Xenusion auerswaldae turn out to be most basal Buddit would become necessary to consider that only the neuropodium is homologous to the lobopodium and arthropodium.


The presence or absence of ventral cirri is also observed to be pollychaeta independent of the presence or absence of dorsal cirri.

Their systematics, biology, and evolution. There is no popychaeta evidence that Platyhelminthes have coeloms or derive from coelomate or metameric ancestors.

The Recent onychophorans are morphologically too distant from the Cambrian fossils, and their adaptations for the terrestrial environment may significantly obscure their ancestral morphology and anatomy. Feather Duster worms, Clam worms, Christmas Tree worms. Functional consequences of simple cilia in the mitraria of oweniids an anomalous larva of an anomalous polychaete and comparisons with other larvae, p. Acta ZoologicaStockholm, 68 2: Tree of Life Project. Reports on the results of dredging, under the direction of L.

No single feature distinguishes Annelids from other invertebrate phyla, but they have a distinctive combination of features. De Wikipedia, le encyclopedia libere. New York, Wiley-Liss, vol. The simplest are unjointed and form paired bundles near the top and bottom of each side of each segment. For example, two distinct states, an axial and a ventral proboscis, occur in the Spionida.

Glycera kerguelensis McIntosh and G. Order Amphinomida Free-moving; prostomium with 1 to 5 antennae, 2 palpi, and a caruncle posterior ridge deeply set into anterior segments; parapodia with 2 pklychaeta and branchiae gills ; size, 0. Following parapodia biramous, with two triangular to digitiform prechaetal lobes of about same length Figure 8b-fand two shorter postchaetal lobes, more evident from eighth parapodium; shorter, rounded notopodial postchaetal lobe and elongated, triangular neuropodial lobe, both slender in posterior parapodia Figure 8c-f.


Polychaeta – Wikipedia, le encyclopedia libere

Nuchal organ a transverse slit and not everted on basal prostomial ring. Some polychaetes breed only once in their lives, while others breed almost continuously or through several breeding seasons. Although many species can reproduce asexually and use similar mechanisms to regenerate after severe injuries, sexual reproduction is the normal method in species whose reproduction has been polycyaeta.

SarsiaOslo, 70 1: Both coding strategies have been analyzed as non-ordered and as ordered transformations. To avoid the noise produce by that kind of coding it is necessary to deal with the entire range of the evolution of multistate characters and character reversions. As with most other characters, the chaetae are lost in several specialized groups poljchaeta.

Review of shell reduction and loss in traditional and phylogenetic molluscan systematics, with experimental manipulation of negative gain character. The system is rather conservative and maintains the general lines of Hatschek, with archiannelids at the base. At the bottom of the article, feel free to list any sources that support your changes, so that we can fully understand their context.

The 60 characters used in our analyses are presented in tables I-III. I51 represents a synapomorphy for terebelliform metamerians. Pilato resurrected Storch’s ideas on the primitiveness of the errant polychaetes and suggested that they could be derived directly from a flatworm-like ancestor.
