Polychaete cuticle does have some preservation potential; it tends to survive for at least 30 days after a polychaete’s death.

More than annellda, species are described in this class. In other projects Wikimedia Commons Wikispecies.

Tubifex worms are often used as a live food for fish, especially tropical fish and certain other freshwater anneliva. Freshwater Animal Diversity Assessment: In most annslida the body cavity is divided into separate compartments by sheets of peritoneum between each segment, but in some species it’s more continuous. The body of the sea mouse is covered in a dense mat of parapodia and setae hairlike structures. The outer surface of the body wall consists of a simple columnar epithelium covered by a thin cuticle.

However, the worms can still be vectors anneloda whirling diseasewhich can affect salmonids. Most are now commercially obtained from the effluent of fish hatcheries, or from professional worm farms.


A few are parasitic. The genus includes the following species: List of Annelid families.

The rear end of the worm develops into a “stolon” containing the eggs or anenlida, and this stolon becomes detached from the parent worm, and rises to the sea surface where fertilisation takes place. Oligochaeta, Tubificidae with a preliminary reappraisal of the genus”.

Annekida species in the genus Eunicie reproduce by epitoky. In mature specimens, the reproductive organs are clearly found on the ventral side of the body. The front half, the atoke, is asexual. Normally, these have a deep red sheen, warning off predators, but when the light shines on them perpendicularly, they flush green and blue, a “remarkable example of photonic engineering by a living organism”.

This is because, when viewed ventrally, the animal resembles a human female’s genitalia. As such, polychaetes are sometimes referred to as bristle worms. In general, however, llasifikasi possess a pair of jaws and a pharynx that can be rapidly everted, allowing the worms to grab food and pull it into their mouths.

Wikispecies has information related to Polychaeta. The brain is relatively large, annflida with that of other annelids, and lies in the upper part of the head.

Annelida – Wikipedia

Aphroditaor sea mouseis a genus of marine polychaete worms found in the Mediterranean sea and the eastern and western Atlantic Ocean. This page was last edited on 9 Decemberat An endocrine gland is attached to the ventral posterior surface of the brain, and appears to be involved in reproductive activity. A few species copulatebut most fertilize their eggs externally. In addition to the sensory organs on the head, photosensitive eye spots, statocystsand numerous additional sensory nerve endings, most likely in involved with the sense of touch, also occur on the body.


Taxonomically, polychaetes are thought to be paraphyletic[18] meaning the group excludes some descendants of its most recent common ancestor. The head also includes a pair of antennaetentacle-like palpsand a pair of pits lined with ciliaknown as “nuchal organs”.

Additionally, they are very difficult for some fish to obtain in the wild, so certain fish, such as Rift Valley cichlids, will obsessively consume them until they make themselves sick. This article needs additional citations for verification. The gonads shed immature gametes directly into the body cavity, where they complete their development. Polychaetes occur throughout the Earth’s oceans at all depths, from forms that live as plankton near the surface, to a 2- klaifikasi 3-cm specimen still unclassified observed by the robot ocean probe Nereus at the bottom of the Challenger Deepthe deepest known spot in the Earth’s oceans.
